The Department of State Services (DSS) has flown Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, to Abuja as part of investigations for campaigning in favour of Biafra and allegedly inciting the public.
Agu 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 and other items to the poor.
The army had accused him of soliciting support for the illegal Indigenous People of Biafra which has been accused of several acts of terrorism. He was subsequently handed over to the DSS for investigation and prosecution.
However, a relative of the Nollywood actor told the press on the condition of anonymity that they had been denied access to him.
He said attempts to see him in Abuja were rebuffed by the DSS.
“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.
