Cute Abiola, a Nigerian comedian who`s also a personnel of the Nigerian navy has been released from the custody of the Nigerian navy.
The comic artist was released after being detained for weeks for violating the armed forces’ social media policy.
Saluman Dahun, a navy spokesperson, said in a statement that the comedian had been released to serve his sentence.
Furthermore, the comedian will be responsible for monitoring those “clearing gutters” in the navy barracks for one month, according to him.
“Yes, he’s been released,” he said. However, as a form of punishment, he has been assigned ‘extra duty.’ That means he’d be in charge of coordinating the barracks’ hygiene for a month.
The Nigerian Navy announced in November that it had arrested Cute Abiola for allegedly violating the armed forces’ social media policy.
The announcement comes after Mr. Macaroni raised concern about his colleague’s sudden disappearance from the eyes of the public.
The statement by the Nigerian Navy read, “The attention of the navy has been drawn to an online news story claiming naval personnel OSCOMP Abdulgafar AA; who incidentally is a popular comedian known as Cute Abiola, has gone missing.
“The Nigerian Navy wishes to categorically debunk this false news report currently trending online.
“OSCOMP Abdulgafar is currently under custody in his unit for breaching the armed forces social media policy and refusal to obey particular orders.
“The Nigerian navy wishes to avail itself this incident to remind its personnel to comply with the provisions of the armed forces social media policy in their usage of social media platforms.
“The Policy, amongst others, is emplaced to protect their personal safety and security; as well as the information integrity of the activities of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.”
