Instagram comedian and Naval personnel Abdulgafar Ahmad, popularly known as Cute Abiola, has spent about 14 days in the custody of the Nigerian Navy.
Some of his colleagues, including the popular Mr. Macaroni, had raised the alarm over his whereabouts.
Cute Abiola’s last post on Instagram was on November 14.
Following the sustained public interest in the matter, particularly on social media, his employer – the Nigerian Navy – clarified in a statement that the comedian was in its custody.
The Nation learnt that Cute Abiola is being detained for posting a video of himself in military uniform on social media, an act which violates the armed forces’ social media policy.
