Nigerian comedian and Naval officer, Abdulgafar Abiola, popularly known as CuteAbiola, has been arrested by the Nigerian Navy for celebrating his birthday by posing in his official uniform.
CuteAbiola was arrested around 7pm on Wednesday, April, 29, 2020 in Lagos and is currently being held at a Naval facility in Apapa.
According to reports, 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.
An 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.
