BREAKING: Chiwetalu Agu Released From Army Custody


Veteran Nollywood actor, Chinwetalu Agu, who was arrested by the Nigerian Army on Thursday, for adorning IPOB’s attire, has been released.

This was announced on the verified Instagram page of actress Chizzy Alichi.

The actor, in a viral video, had said he was allegedly arrested at the commercial city of Onitsha in Anambra state while sharing food to less privileged persons wearing an attire of the rising sun, not a Biafran or ESN regalia.


The Army, in a statement by the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, on Thursday, however, said Agu was not subjected to any form of brutalisation.

Actress Chizzy Alichi, while giving an update on the actor’s arrest in a post via her Instagram account, said he has finally been released.

”Uncle Chinwetalu Agu has been released. He is safe and sound.

”All thanks to God and everyone that contributed in one way or the other,” she wrote.
