Cute Abiola, the online skit maker, has returned to social media about one month after his ordeal with the Nigerian navy.
The entertainer took to his Instagram page on Monday to announce his return in a post accompanied by several of his photos.
“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it… Thank you all. We’re back for you,” he wrote.
Cute Abiola, whose real name is Abdulgafar Ahmad Oluwatoyin, was detained on November 15 after he left for his Navy Town office in Lagos.

Saluman Dahun, the navy spokesperson, confirmed that he had been released from detention on December 3 but said the funnyman was handed a month’s punishment.
The punishment, TheCable Lifestyle understands, was for violating the navy’s social media policy.
It is understood that Abiola was finally allowed to return home on Monday after serving out his punishment.
Dahun had earlier disclosed that the entertainer’s release from detention was delayed to enable the navy to conclude its internal probe of the case.
“Abdulgafar’s case is being handled administratively, period. There is an internal process regarding the case of Cute Abiola. It has started. At the end of the process, you will be briefed,” he had said.
Mr. Macaroni, the comedian, first raised concerns about Abiola’s whereabouts in a Twitter post.
But in its reaction, the navy had said: “OSCOMP Abdulgafar is currently under custody in his unit for breaching the armed forces social media policy and refusal to obey particular orders.”
