Nollywood veteran actor, Chinwetalu Agu, has eventually opened up on his arrest by the Nigerian Army and Department of State Services (DSS).
Recall that Chiwetalu Agu was arrested by men of the Nigerian Army on Thursday October 7th, 2021 at Upper Iweka Bridge, Onitsha, Anambra State for wearing a Biafran regalia.
Agu, after he was released by the Nigerian Army, was re-arrested by the operatives of the DSS on Friday, October 8th, 2021.
However, recounting on his experience in the Army and DSS detention, Agu, said; “It didn’t start well but God took control. I was only buying bread for the poor. Soldiers came in and started scattering things.”
“They said they are calling me in the office but they did not tell me my offence. Because they did not tell me my offence, I refused to follow them.”
“That drama that took place was important so that they will know that Igbo are here. That moment of Upper Iweka till the time we got to the army barracks close to Zik Mausoleum, to 82 Division of the Nigerian Army and to DSS office in Abuja, nobody touched me. They treated me with respect.”
“Every officer wanted to be involved in the case so that they can have opportunity to interact with Chinwetalu Agu.”
Agu made the revelation on Thursday, October 14th, 2021 in Enugu, Enugu State during a welcome back party organized by members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
