Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, and representatives of Actors Guild of Nigeria have paid a courtesy visit to human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), after the actor’s release from Department of State Services.
Recall that Tuesday, October 12 Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) in a statement via their official Facebook page said the Association facilitated the release of the veteran actor.
The Nollywood veteran 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).
According to the lawyer, the secret police released Agu because they didn’t find anything incriminating on the actor’s phones.
Ozekhome made this revelation in a statement on Tuesday shortly after the secret police released the actor from its headquarters in Abuja.
The lawyer said his chambers took up Agu’s case after being briefed by the Actors Guild of Nigeria.
After his release, Chiwetalu Agu in the company of AGN representatives visited Ozekhome in his Abuja’s chambers.
