Main reason why Instagram comedian and Naval personnel, Abdulgafar Ahmad Oluwatoyin aka Cute Abiola, was detained and punished by the Nigerian Navy has been revealed.
Recall that the Instagram comedian was released on Friday. He was arrested on November 15, 2021, has been released from detention to serve his ‘light corrective punishment’ in the cantonment till December 15, 2021.
According to reports, Cute Abiola has been placed on one-month ‘extra duty’ for wearing police uniform in one of his skits and for ridiculing the Nigeria Police Force. “Cute Abiola has been placed on one-month extra duty after he was tried. He will be in charge of cleanship; supervising painting, electricians, carpentry, cutting of grasses, and others. He will be supervising civilians.
“He is no longer under detention. He has been released to move around to serve his punishment. Because he was detained on November 15, that one month will start counting from then, which means he is going to be engaged till December 15. By then, he will be off the extra duty,” Navy authorities said on Saturday.
