Actor Chiwetalu Agu Manhandled By Soldiers For Wearing Biafra Outfit
Soldiers in Onitsha, Anambra State, on Wednesday manhandled Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, for wearing an outfit with Biafra inscriptions.
Jameela News gathered from a viral video, 65-year-old Chiwetalu Agu is seen around Upper Iweka Bridge donning the Biafra outfit and walking near a green bus when two armed soldiers wrestle him to the ground and drag him this is reported by The Punch
It was gathered that the actor was in Onitsha on a charity mission where he regularly gifts the less privileged with food items when he was arrested by soldiers.
“He was sharing food with some less privileged persons at Upper Iweka when the soldiers approached him and arrested him. He was manhandled and arrested and taken to their barracks,” a source said.
Chiwetalu Agu, who is a supporter of the Biafra cause, had, in several videos, criticised the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for marginalising Igbo.
Nigerian security forces have, in recent times, banned people from donning Biafra outfits, even as the South-East continues to face security challenges.
On Wednesday, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, threatened that the Federal Government would not hesitate to declare a state of emergency in Anambra if the state of security does not improve.
