Nollywood veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu, has been released from the detention of the Department of State Services (DSS). You might have heard that the actor was arrested by DSS hours after he was released by the Nigerian Army last week for wearing a Biafra-themed attire.
His release was made possible by the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN). AGN made this known via a statement signed by their Communication Director, Monalisa Chinda on their official page.
The statement read,
“The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejezie Emeka Rollas has yet again secured the release of Actor Chiwetalu Agu from the custody of the DSS.
“On behalf of the Guild, I was at the DSS office with my colleague, the Senior special Assistant on Military Affairs and Inter Governmental Relations to the President Steve Eboh to receive Mr. Agu today.
“The elated veteran Actor thanked God for surviving the ordeal and commended the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria headed by Ejezie Emeka Rollas for their relentless efforts in securing his release from the detention.”
