Navy places Cute Abiola on one-month punishment for ridiculing police

The Nigerian Navy has placed one of its personnel OSCOMP Abdulgafar Ahmad popularly known as Cute Abiola on one-month punishment for ridiculing the Nigeria Police Force in one of his skits.

Cute Abiola, who is a skit maker, was taken into custody on November 15. He was only released on Friday to serve his ‘light corrective punishment’ in the cantonment.

Naval spokesperson Commodore Suleman Dahun told PUNCH on Friday that the funnyman was given a ‘one-month extra duty’ after a military trial.

Dahun said, “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.”

According to him, Cute Abiola’s punishment will end on December 15 and he will be allowed to return home.

The comedian’s lawyer Fatai Adebanjo said the news excites him as his client’s mother and wife have been worried over him.

“We appreciate the Nigerian Navy for the consideration and we know that we are counting days for him to rejoin his family,” Mr Adebanjo said.
