Veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu has challenged the Nigerian Army over his recent arrest for wearing a controversial outfit that they said depicts Biafra.
The Nollywood actor said that was not the case, as the fabric was not made out of the Biafran Flag but only depicts a ‘Rising Sun’.
The actor was arrested by soldiers who manhandled him on Thursday in Upper Iweka area of Anambra state after he was spotted wearing an outfit made out of the Biafran Flag.
The comedian and movie producer was seen sitting on the ground trying to prove to the Nigerian army that the cloth he was wearing has nothing to do with Biafra.
He said he was just wearing a colourful cloth with a sun on it and it had nothing to do with Biafra, adding that he was very educated and he knows what he is saying.
The Nigerian Army has since issued a statement on the arrest adding that the actor was arrested for soliciting support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
But as it looked from the video, the actor who has whisked away in the viral video didn’t incite public peace.
