26-year-old skit Maker ‘Cute Abiola’ Resigns From Navy

Popular Nigerian comic actor and skit maker, Abdulgafar Ahmad, popularly known as Cute Abiola, has announced his resignation from the Nigerian Navy.

The announcement came a few hours after Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, appointed him as his Special Assistant on Creative Industries.

The 26-year-old said he resigned from the Navy to afford him “enough time to passionately pursue my dreams.”

His exit came about a year after the Nigerian Navy arrested and detained him for about a month on the grounds that he violated the Armed Forces Social Media Policy.

Ahmad was arrested several times supposedly for creating skits while wearing the official camouflage of the Nigerian military. CONTINUE READING...
