The President of AGN Tackles Chinwetalu Agu for wearing Biafran Regalia

The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, has reacted to the arrest of veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu by the Nigerian Army.

Chiwetalu Agu was arrested by the Nigerian Army at Upper Iweka, Onitsha, Anambra state for putting on Biafra regalia, though the Nigerian army alleged that he was soliciting support for the proscribed IPOB.

He was reportedly taken to 82 Division Enugu with the Army saying his regalia was an act of incitement towards a proscribed group.

Speaking with Vanguard, Emeka Rollas, president of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) condemned Chinwetalu Agu’s actions, noting that the rate of insecurity in the country is high and Agu’s move was a bad one. He also said that the Guild is doing everything possible to ensure Chiwetalu Agu is released.

“I don’t know why he put on Biafra regalia. The state is hot. We are in talks with the military officials to ensure he is released. I heard they have taken him to 82 Division of the Nigeria Military base. We will do our best. Please I will call you back”, Vanguard quoted Rollas.
