Veteran Nigerian actor, Chinwetalu Agu has finally spoken about his dramatic arrest by men of the Nigerian Army for wearing a Biafran outfit.
 
Recall that the incident resulted in a nationwide outcry for the release of the veteran.
 
In 2021, a video had emerged online showing some soldiers harassing the movie star for putting on Biafra attire.
 
According to the army, it arrested the actor for canvassing support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
  
Speaking during an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Chinwetalu Agu said the incident occurred during a visit to Onitsha.
 
According to the thespian, he went to greet a few people in Anambra State when some fans solicited help from him, only for the army to arrest him.
 
He said, “I finished a shoot in Asaba and came to Onitsha and wanted just to say hello to a few people, but they walled me out of hunger, serious hunger that I had to say, let me buy some loaves of bread, but as I was buying the population was increasing.

“I didn’t even know when the soldiers came until the way they did, It is not a thing you will find in a civilized country. What I heard from some people after the event was that an APC man was watching the crowd multiplying and was thinking that I was gathering votes for PDP.”
