DSS: Chiwetalu Agu Flown To Abuja, Denied Visitation
Veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu has been flown by the Department of State Services (DSS) to Abuja for allegedly promoting Biafra and inciting members of the public.
Ezenwoko’s Blog recalls that the Nigerian Army arrested Agu last week around Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, for reportedly wearing a Biafra outfit while distributing bread and other items to the poor.
The actor was accused by the army of soliciting support for the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The Nigerian Army thereafter handed him over to the secret police for investigation and prosecution.
A relative of the actor, who spoke to The Punch on the condition of anonymity, said Agu has been denied access to his relatives.
The relative further stated that the actor was first moved from Anambra to Enugu and then to Abuja.
He disclosed that every attempt to see him in Abuja has been rejected by the DSS.
The relative said, “We spent two days trying to ascertain his whereabouts. We were later informed that he was moved to Enugu and then Abuja.
“We heard that the idea is to move him away from the South-East. We have made efforts to see him, but the DSS has not granted us access. Even the lawyers have not been allowed to reach him.”
