DSS Moves Chiwetalu Agu to Abuja – The Department of State Services (DSS), has moved Veteran Nollywood comic actor Chiwetalu Agu up to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, The Nation reports.
The actor was first harassed, dragged and arrested by the Nigerian Army on October 7, 2021, at Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, for adorning a Biafra outfit while distributing bread and other items to the poor.
The army had accused him of soliciting support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, but he told them that he is only wearing a casual dress. Despite detaining him for 24hours, he was released the following day but was re-arrested again by the DSS for investigation and prosecution.
A relative of the actor who spoke on the recent development said attempts to see him in Abuja were rebuffed by the DSS.
“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” a relation said
