The Department Of State Security Service, DSS, has reportedly arrested veteran Nollywood Actor, Chinwetalu Agu after he was released by the Nigerian Army.
According to Nigerian writer, Chiagozie Fred Nwonwu, “Chiwetalu Agu is still not free.He is with DSS now. Colleagues say they are looking for a top lawyer to bail him,” Nwonwu wrote on his known Facebook page on Friday.
Recall that there were widespread reports on Friday that Agu had been released by the Nigerian Army, following his arrest on Thursday, for wearing Biafra regalia.
Agu was arrested in Onitsha, Anambra State. His manhandling and subsequent seizure was strongly condemned by majority of social media users. The army came out to say it arrested Agu for soliciting support for the proscribed separatist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
