The Nigerian Navy has given more update as Comedian Cute Aboola has spent 10 days in detention.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Nigerian Navy has provided more update as the Naval personnel and online comedian, Abdulgafar Ahmad, aka Cute Abiola, has spent 10 days in the custody for posting a video of himself in military uniform on social media.
In an interview with PUNCH on Wednesday, the Naval spokesperson, Commodore Saluman Dahun, said Ahmad’s case is an administrative matter which is being treated administratively.
He, however, declined further comments on the matter as he did not state when the comedian would be release to his family.
When asked on Wednesday whether the comedian has been released, the naval spokesman said, “An administrative process is on regarding the matter. Period!”
Asked whether the comedian would be charged, Dahun told The PUNCH that “it is an administrative issue and it is going to be addressed administratively. Period!”
Recall that his colleague in the comedy industry, Debo Adedayo aka Mr Macaroni, had raised the alarm that Cute Abiola might be missing. He said he went missing after reporting at his office in Navy Town, Lagos on Monday, November 15, 2021.
But the Navy, in a statement, later said the funnyman wasn’t missing but was detained for contravening the naval laws by posting a video of himself in military uniform on social media, an act which is said to be in violation of the armed forces’ social media policy.
Dahun also claimed 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 in custody the same day.
