Comedian TheCuteAbiola arrested over his birthday pictures

Nigerian comedian – who is also a Naval officer – Abdulgafar Abiola aka CuteAbiola, has been arrested by the Nigerian Navy for celebrating his birthday by posing in his official uniform on Instagram.

The officer was arrested around 7pm on Wednesday, April, 29, 2020 in Lagos and is currently being held at a Naval facility in Apapa.

According to our source, he was arrested because his action isn’t expected of an officer and it may be deemed punishable with a very lengthy detention or dismissal from service.

The insider said CuteAbiola got in trouble after one of his overzealous fans made a video collage of his birthday pictures just to celebrate him. The video, however, went viral on WhatsApp and ended up with the Naval hierarchy.
