Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have reportedly arrested veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, few hours after he was released by the Nigerian army.
National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), disclosed this to TheCable on Saturday.
According to him, the movie star was arrested by the DSS operatives on Friday evening, adding that the ace actor has not been released since then.
Rollas said the AGN is currently working to secure the release of Agu.
“He has been arrested by DSS. He was arrested yesterday in the evening. We’re working on his release,” he said in a telephone c
The 65-year-old movie star was first arrested on Thursday by soldiers for wearing an outfit with the inscriptions of proscribed Indigeneous People of Biafra(IPOB).
The army, however, said that Agu was arrested after he publicly displayed his solidarity for IPOB.
He was eventually released on Friday, after spending over 24 hours in detention, a development that sparked widespread outrage on social media.
The actor had earlier dismissed claims by the army that he was supporting activities of IPOB in the South East.
He also argued that he only wore a civil dress not Biafra outfit as claimed.
