Instagram skit maker: Cute Abiola is reported to be missing




Ahmed Gafar, professionally known as Cute Abiola has been announced missing by families and friends for over 24 hours. He is a well-known social media skit maker.


Comedian Mr Macaroni shared a statement on Tuesday evening that Cute Abiola, who is also a Nigerian Naval officer left his residence at about 6:00 a.m. on Monday for office at Navy Town. Up till now, nothing had been heard from him.


Sharing a screenshot of the statement, Mr Macaroni appealed to the Nigerian Navy to confirm the skit maker’s whereabouts.


Mr. Macaroni tweeted;


“If the Nigerian Navy has any information to help Cute Abiola’s family and friends confirm his whereabouts or if he is in their custody, I think the honorable thing to do would be to clarify details surrounding his detention and put everyone’s mind at rest.”

Cute Abiola was said to have called his wife on the telephone at his office, but several attempts to reach him later have proved abortive.


“His wife and other associates have made several attempts to contact him but to no avail. Since he last communicated with his wife and associates that he already got to the office, he has not returned to his family and no one has heard from him till this moment,” the statement said.


While his whereabouts remain unclear, reports said he had been locked up in a cell without the naval authorities making his detention public.


“It was subsequently gathered from a reliable source that he has been locked up in the Nigerian Navy cell since he got to the office yesterday morning till the time of posting this information without being fed, and no date has been stated for his release from custody,” the statement disclosed.


“This unfortunate situation has rendered his wife emotionally tortured and traumatized as The Cute Abiola is an Ulcer patient. Hence, not feeding an Ulcer patient as punishment for an undisclosed offence is something to be worried about with a view to avoiding unnecessary circumstance with regards to the health of The Cute Abiola.”


However, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Navy, Suleman Dahun, told Peoples Gazette that he was unaware of the matter.


Last year, Cute Abiola was arrested after sharing his birthday photos in a navy uniform.


Cute Abiola began his career as a Comedian while in secondary school performing on stage. In 2015, he took to Instagram and started recording 15 seconds video. Cute Abiola made his big break earning over thousands of followers on Instagram after he made a video to support Big Brother Naija’s contestant, Bisola.


Cute Abiola was once arrested by the Nigerian Navy for celebrating his birthday by posing in his official uniform on Instagram. He was however released on May 4 2020.
