After spending over a week in the custody of the Nigerian Navy, a member of the team of popular skit maker Ahmed Gafar, known as Cute Abiola, has called for prayers for the comedian.
Earlier 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.

The post reads: As you’re making your prayers Today, Kindly help me Put him in your prayers too. God bless you.
