Biafra: Kanu’s lawyer, Ejiofor reacts as DSS re-arrests Chiwetalu Agu

Reacting to the development, Ejiofor called for the immediate and unconditional release of the 65-years-old actor.

He charged the military to apologise to Agu for violating his fundamental human rights.

In a statement he issued on Saturday, Ejiofor said: “I was shocked to watch a respected elder and widely celebrated Nollywood Veteran Actor, who has creditably distinguished himself in the industry being dehumanized and treated like a common criminal. If I may ask, what offence has Agu committed to warrant being subjected to such humiliation, torture, inhumane treatment and degradation by those who knows little or nothing about our laws?

“Can these untamed men, recklessly abusing their offices tell us why they are desecrating our elders and by extension the sacred land of our ancestors?

“Unfortunately, disturbing information reaching me few hours ago is that Chief Chiwetalu Agu has been re-arrested by the DSS. We hereby demand for the immediate and unconditional release of Chief Chiwetalu Agu, from the custody of the DSS,” he added.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Counsel to pro-Biafra agitator Nnamdi Kanu, has denounced the Department of State Services’ arrest of Nollywood veteran Chiwetalu Agu.

The secret police’s arrest of Agu, according to Ejiofor, is an example of how Nigerian security operatives are desecrating the Southeast.

The Nigerian Army detained the Nollywood actor in Onitsha, Anambra State, for wearing Biafra regalia.

Soldiers detained Agu on Thursday on Upper Iweka Bridge when he was participating in a charity event.

The Nigerian Army, on the other hand, freed him, only to be re-arrested by DSS operatives on Friday.
