President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, have reacted to the recent arrest of his colleague, Chiwetalu Agu.
Emeka disclosed that they will put in their best to ensure the release of Chiwetalu Agu.
“I don’t know why he put on Biafra regalia. The state is hot. We are in talks with the military officials to ensure he is released. I heard they have taken him to 82 Division of the Nigeria Military base. We will do our best,” he said.
The actor has been released on Friday, according to a post by actress Chizzy Alichi on Instagram.
The actor was arrested in Onitsha when he was spotted wearing Biafran regalia on Thursday.
The army later released a statement where it revealed that the actor was arrested for inciting members of the public and soliciting for support for the Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). However, the Army in a statement issued by its Director of Public Relations, Onyema Unwachuku said Agu was not subjected to any form of brutalisation.
