Veteran Nollywood actor, Chinwetalu Agu, has recounted his experience in the hands of the Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services, DSS.

The 75-year-old actor was arrested in Upper Iweka Bridge in Onitsha, Anambra State.

Agu was picked up while carrying out a charity activity, for wearing a Biafra-themed outfit.

He was, however, released but DSS rearrested him.

Agu disclosed that soldiers and DSS operatives treated him with respect while in detention.

He said: “It didn’t start well but God took control. I was only buying bread for the poor. Soldiers came in and started scattering things. They said they are calling me in the office but they did not tell me my offence. Because they did not tell me my offence, I refused to follow them. “That drama that took place was important so that they will know that Igbo are here. That moment of Upper Iweka till the time we got to the army barracks close to Zik Mausoleum, to 82 Division of the Nigerian Army and to DSS office in Abuja, nobody touched me. They treated me with respect.

Every officer wanted to be involved in the case so that they can have opportunity to interact with Chinwetalu Agu.”


DSS released him following intervention of Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN.
