What DSS, soldiers did to me in detention – Nollywood veteran, Chiwetalu Agu

Chinwetalu Agu, a veteran Nollywood actor, has spoken out about his ordeal at the hands of the Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services, or DSS.

The 75-year-old actor was arrested in Onitsha, Anambra State’s Upper Iweka Bridge.

Agu was detained while participating in a charity event for wearing a Biafra-themed attire.

He said: “It didn’t start well but God took control. I was only buying bread for the poor. Soldiers came in and started scattering things. They said they are calling me in the office but they did not tell me my offence. Because they did not tell me my offence, I refused to follow them.

“The drama that took place was crucial in letting them know that Igbo are here.” Nobody touched me from the time we left Upper Iweka until we were at the army barracks near the Zik Mausoleum, the 82nd Division of the Nigerian Army, and the DSS office in Abuja. They were polite to me.

Every officer wanted to be involved in the case so that they can have opportunity to interact with Chinwetalu Agu.”

DSS released him following intervention of Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN.
