Following the unlawful physical abuse and arrest of Nollywood veteran Actor, Chiwetalu Agu in Anambra on Thursday by the Nigerian Army, he has come out to explain the reasons the military gave for treating him as such.
Mr. Agu said he was in Onitsha on that fateful afternoon sharing or distributing N10,000 worth of bread to the masses, when he was cornered by a military officer.
“I was buying bread, ten thousand naira bread, sharing them one one, no campaign, nothing! I was sharing bread when they came,” the actor said as he was being commandeered into an office.
The Nigerian Army had issued out a public statement saying the actor was arrested “while inciting members of the public and soliciting for support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra”.
“This is sun, this is rising sun not Biafra, not eastern security network” Mr Agu said, debunking the bases of his arrest.
After his release, he was still seen wearing the Biafran colours.
