Why and how Chinwetalu Agu was released by DSS – Ozekhome

Human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, says the Department of State Services (DSS) released veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu after searching his phone and finding nothing incriminating.

The lawyer in a statement on Tuesday said that Agu committed no offence to have warranted his arrest.

“Several interactions were held by the chambers with the DSS operatives, who were, however, very civil and very cooperative.

“Agu was released this (Tuesday) evening to Steve Eboh and Monalisa Chinda (Director of Media, Actors Guild of Nigeria), by the DSS at their headquarters in Abuja, after a careful search on his phones showed nothing incriminating,” he said.

The 65-year-old actor was first arrested by the Nigerian Army last Thursday for wearing Biafra regalia in Onitsha, Anambra State.

He was arrested in Upper Iweka Bridge by soldiers while carrying out a charity.

Agu was released by the Nigerian Army on Friday.

But he was re-arrested by DSS operatives.
