One of Nigeria’s highly respected veteran actors, Chiwetalu Agu, was recently arrested by the Nigerian Army on Wednesday, October 7, for adorning an outfit with the Biafran flag on it.
As expected, there was outrage after the controversial arrest. Many Nigerians voiced out their displeasure about the incident and called for the man’s release. Chiwetalyu Agu has eventually been released.
He was released today October 8, after the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria mediated. Following his release, the actor was seen in this video flanked by colleagues.
