Actor cum skit maker, Debo Adebayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni, has given an update on the situation with his colleague, Ahmed Gafar aka Cute Abiola.
Recall a statement by the Director of Information, Navy Headquarters, Cdre Suleman Dahun, disclosed Cute Abiola was taken into custody for violating and breaching Armed Forces of Nigeria social media policy.
A week after the news made headlines on several media platforms, Cute Abiola is yet to regain his freedom and fans and friends have expressed concern over the issue.
Mr Macaroni has now provided an update about him.
“A lot of people have been asking me about Cute Abiola. I don’t have much information as only his Wife and Mother are allowed to see him. And I do not want to speak much on the matter so that my statement isn’t taken in bad faith. But last I checked he is still in custody.
“His wife told me personally that she and his mom are granted access to see him. The Nigerian Navy has said that he is in custody for breaching some codes and refusing to obey order. As a military officer, he is answerable to their command and under their jurisdiction.
“This isn’t a new thing in the Military. But as a public figure, Cute Abiola has millions of followers worldwide hence the reason for the consistent concern from his fans and friends.
“We can only continue to send our best wishes to him,” Mr Macaroni wrote.
