DSS reportedly arrest Nollywood veteran actor, Chinwetalu Agu, for wearing Biafran attire in public, Upper Iweka Road, Onitsha, Anambra state

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it Nigerian veteran actor, Chinwetalu Agu, has been arrested by the Department of State Security Services, DSS, for wearing Biafran/IPOB outfit in public at Upper Iweka Road, Onitsha, Anambra state. (Read More Here).


Military Spokesman, Onyema Nwachukwu, In a statement on Thursday night revealed that Agu resisted arrest and was not brutalised as widely reported.

“Chinwetalu Agu was picked up for questioning while inciting members of the public to join the proscribed group. Though he attempted puting up some resistance when troops made effort to take him into custody, he was not assaulted or subjected to brutalization.”

“While the NA recognizes the inalienable rights of the citizenry to freedom of movement and expression as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is apparently a violation for any individual or group to incite the public to cause mayhem or break down of law and order. It is therefore pertinent to state that while exercising such freedoms, it must be done within the confines of the law, bearing in mind the imperative for peace, and national security.”

However, on Friday afternoon, reports filtered in that the Army had released Chinwetalu Agu but findings by this newspaper reveal otherwise.

The comic actor was instead handed over to the Department of State Security Service, DSS.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the Secret police, Dr. Peter Afunanya(PhD.), confirmed that the Army handed Agu over to the service.
