Daily Report Nigeria can recall that the 65-year-old actor was picked up by men of the Nigerian Army last Thursday at Upper Iweka, Onitsha, Anambra State, for reportedly wearing a Biafra outfit.

However, the comic actor said he was only carrying out a charity exercise.

While Agu was released by the Nigerian Army after spending a night in custody, he was handed over to the secret police on Friday, before being transferred to Abuja for interrogation.

In a statement titled ‘Chiwetalu Agu Released By DSS,’ Ozekhome said Agu committed no offense to warrant 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.
