The Navy said Cute Abiola was not missing, but locked up in his unit for violating the military’s “social media policy”.
The Nigerian Navy has confirmed that it is holding famed Instagram skit producer Ahmed Gafar aka Cute Abiola. The Navy alleged that Cute Abiola was arrested for violating her social media policy.
“The young man was found to have violated social media policy while on leave. So he was recalled, asked to return, but refused until he completed his discharge, which is a disobedience to special orders, ”Navy spokesman Commodore Suleman Dahun told the Gazette.
He reiterated that Cute Abiola was not dispersed but locked up in her unit for violating the “social media policy of the armed forces”.
“So when he returned, we took him into custody to face the consequences “ Mr. Dahun added. The likeable Abiola, a naval officer, was last seen Monday morning after leaving his residence for his office in Navy Town.
He is said to have spoken to his wife on the phone upon his arrival at the office, but several attempts to reach him later were unsuccessful.
According to Dahun, naval officers were warned not to make certain information public on social media by sharing photos.
“You know, sometimes if you take your picture in one of these sensitive units of ours, you are giving intelligence advice. You’re giving away information you shouldn’t give and we’ve told them multiple times to desist from showing off on social media. “
Last year, Cute Abiola was arrested for posing in her navy uniform for her birthday.
