According to reports, veteran Nollywood actor Chinwetalu Agu has reportedly been transferred to the ‘dungeon,’ a secret cell of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja, where he will remain until his release.
This online news platform understands that Omoyele Sowore, a human rights activist, was the one who made this development public.
It should be noted that Agu was apprehended by the DSS on Friday, October 8, shortly after being released by the Nigerian army.
Soldiers detained the comic actor on Thursday at the Upper Iweka Bridge in Onitsha, Anambra State, for donning an outfit with Biafra insignias, according to the state police.
Soldiers apprehended him while he was reportedly on a charity mission to help the less fortunate in his community.
The Nigerian army stated in a statement that Agu was detained because he was inciting members of the public and soliciting support for the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which is a banned organisation in the country (IPOB).
The Department of State Services (DSS) denies detaining Nigerians on the orders of powerful people.
In a statement on Friday, Monalisa Chinda Coker, director of communications for the Actors Guild of Nigeria, confirmed that Agu had been released from army custody before being taken into custody by the Department of State Services.
