Nigerian actor Chiwetalu Agu is currently in DSS Custody
The news now is that popular Nollywood actor, Chinwetalu Agu, who was arrested by the Nigerian Army, is currently in the custody of the Department of State Security Services (DSS).
According to the report, Nollywood actor Chinwetalu Agu has been handed over to the Department of State Security Services, DSS, for further investigation.
On Friday afternoon, reports surfaced that the Army had released Chinwetalu Agu, but a source close to the Nigerian Army confirmed that the actor had been handed over to the DSS for further investigation.
On Thursday, Agu was apprehended in Upper-Iweka, Onitsha, Anambra State, after he was seen soliciting support for the banned Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB.
He was also dressed in a complete Biafran outfit.
According to the Nigeria Army, “Chinwetalu Agu was apprehended for questioning while attempting to recruit members of the public to join the banned group. He was not assaulted or subjected to brutalization despite his attempts to resist when troops attempted to take him into custody.”
“While the NA recognises the citizenry’s inalienable rights to freedom of movement and expression, as enshrined in the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s Constitution, it appears to be a violation for any individual or group to incite the public to cause mayhem or break down law and order.” It is therefore important to emphasise that such freedoms must be exercised within the bounds of the law, keeping in mind the need for peace and national security.”
The Nigerian actor, Chiwetalu Agu, at the time of this report, was still in the custody of the Department of State Security Services, DSS.
