Just In: Nollywood Actor, Chiwetalu Agu Released From DSS Detention After Four Days
Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) in a statement via their official Facebook page said the Association facilitated the release of the veteran actor.
Recall that Agu was arrested by DSS hours after he was released by the Nigerian Army last week Thursday.
Nigerian Army says Agu was arrested by soldiers in Upper Iweka area of Onitsha, Anambra State for soliciting support for Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Speaking about the latest development, AGN’s statement signed by their Communication Director, Monalisa Chinda reads;
The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejezie Emeka Rollas has yet again secured the release of Actor Chiwetalu Agu from the custody of the DSS.
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 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.
