•Veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu in the controversial dress



The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejezie Emeka Rollas, has yet again secured the release of veteran Nollywood star Chiwetalu Agu from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

“On behalf of the Guild, I was at the DSS office with my colleague, the Senior special Assistant on Military Affairs and Inter Governmental Relations to the AGN President Steve Eboh to receive Mr. Agu today.

“The elated veteran Actor thanked God for surviving the ordeal and commended the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria headed by Ejezie Emeka Rollas for their relentless efforts in securing his release from the detention,” a statement this evening, Tuesday, October 12, 2021 said. It was signed by AGN Director of Communications, Monalisa Chinda Coker.

Agu regained his freedom shortly after he was flown to Abuja as part of investigations for allegedly promoting Biafra and purportedly inciting members of the public.

He 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.

The army had accused him of soliciting support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra which has been accused of several acts of terrorism. He was subsequently handed over to the DSS for investigation and prosecution.
