DSS flies actor Chiwetalu Agu to Abuja



The Nigerian secret police, DSS has flown veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu, to Abuja as part of investigations for promoting Biafra and allegedly inciting members of the public.

The Nollywood actor was first arrested by the Nigerian Army on October 7, 2021, around Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, for wearing a Biafra outfit while distributing bread to the poor.

The army had accused him of supporting the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra which has been accused of several acts of terrorism in the eastern part of the country. He was later arrested by the DSS for further investigation and prosecution.

Speaking to our correspondent, a relative, who wished to remain anonymous, said Agu was first moved from Anambra to Enugu and then to Abuja.

“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,” the relative said.

Attempts to reach the DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunaya, proved abortive.
