Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson for the Police Force, stated that Cute Abiola, also known as Abdulgafar Abiola, a skit maker, will undergo an investigation and could face prosecution due to his use of police uniforms in his skits.
On Thursday, in a statement, Adejobi revealed that the skit maker, in the skits posted on July 20 and 24, used police uniforms in a manner that was deemed “disrespectful and derogatory.”
He stated that the act goes contrary to Section 251 of the Criminal Code and Section 133 of the Penal Code Law.
“Such acts are not only offensive but also undermine the integrity and dignity of the men and women who wear the uniform in service to the nation,” he explained.
“We, therefore, vehemently condemn the contemptuous act displayed by comedian Abdulgafar Abiola, popularly known as ‘Cute Abiola’ in two recent skits posted on his social media handles on 20th and 24th July 2023.
“The skits in question show a highly disrespectful and derogatory portrayal of the police uniform, an action that is in direct violation of Section 251 of the Criminal Code and Section 133 of the Penal Code Law.”
