Following the arrest of Nollywood actor Chinwetalu Agu, by the Nigerian Army for putting on a Biafran flag outfit, it has been reported that the Department of State Services has flown the actor to Abuja as part of investigations for promoting Biafra and allegedly inciting members of the public.
This is coming after Agu was first arrested by the Nigerian Army on October 7, 2021, around Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, for wearing a Biafra outfit while distributing bread and other items to the poor.
According to reports, a relative of the Nollywood actor, who wished to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the case, said Agu was first moved from Anambra to Enugu and then to Abuja.
He reportedly disclosed “We heard that the idea is to move him away from the South-East. We have made efforts to see him, but the DSS has not granted us access. Even the lawyers have not been allowed to reach him.”
Meanwhile, further reports disclosed that attempts to get a response from DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunaya, proved abortive as he rejected calls; while a text message had not yet been responded to as of the time of filing this report.
