THE Department of State Services, DSS, has freed Chiwetalu Agu, Nollywood actor, who was arrested by the service after he was released by the Nigerian Army on October 8. Agu was arrested for wearing a cloth that looked like the flag of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, whose leader Nnamdi Kanu has been in DSS detention since June 27. 

After his arrest at Onitsha, the soldiers took him to their Enugu office where he was later released and rearrested  by the DSS for ‘further investigation’ according to the spokesman of the service.

Ejezie Emeka Rollas, national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, confirmed that Agu has been released in a statement on October 12. 

The statement reads: “On behalf of the Guild, I was at the DSS office with my colleague, the Senior special Assistant on Military Affairs and Inter Governmental Relations to the AGN President Steve Eboh to receive Mr. Agu today.

“The elated veteran actor thanked God for surviving the ordeal and commended the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria headed by Ejezie Emeka Rollas for their relentless efforts in securing his release from the detention.”
