The Nigerian Navy has freed the online Comedian Abdulgafar Ahmad, aka Cute Abiola, from detention. Naval spokesperson, Commodore Suleman Dahun, confirmed the development today.
Cute Abiola was reported missing on Monday, 15th November 2021, when his colleague in the comedy industry, Debo Adedayo aka Mr Macaroni, raised the alarm that he was nowhere to be found after reporting at his office in Navy Town, Lagos, that same day.
Two days after the alarm was raised, Dahun had announced that the comedian wasn’t missing but was detained for contravening the military laws.

He added that the comedian failed to show up when called upon to explain himself but only returned after the expiration of his leave on November 15, 2021, and was put behind bars on the same day.
The naval spokesman maintained that cute Abiola intentionally violated the armed forces’ social media policy but was given a punishment after he was tried for misconduct and indiscipline.
Dahun confirmed that the comedian is no longer in the naval detention as he has been released and unconstrained.
