Soldiers Manhandle Nollywood Actor Chiwetalu Agu For Wearing Biafra Outfit

Soldiers in Onitsha, Anambra State, on Wednesday manhandled Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, for wearing an outfit with Biafra inscriptions.

In the viral video, 65-year-old Agu is seen around Upper Iweka Bridge donning the Biafra outfit and walking near a green bus when two armed soldiers wrestle him to the ground and drag him.

According to the Punch, the actor was in Onitsha on a charity mission where he regularly gifts the less privileged with food items when he was arrested by soldiers.

“He was sharing food with some less privileged persons at Upper Iweka when the soldiers approached him and arrested him. He was manhandled and arrested and taken  to their barracks,” a source said.

Agu, who is a supporter of the Biafra cause, had, in several videos, criticised the regime of the President Muhammadu Buhari for marginalising Igbo.
