Chiwetalu Agu, a veteran Nollywood actor, has backed the call for Nigeria to divide in order for peace to reign.
This was expressed by Chiwetalu Agu while chatting with Broadway Tv.
Soldiers detained the actor in Onitsha, Anambra State, for allegedly donning Biafra paraphernalia. He was subsequently sent to the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja, where he remained for many days until being released. https://dailypost.ng/2021/10/12/nollywood-actor-chiwetalu-agu-released-from-dss-detention/
“We all must rise,” Chiwetalu Agu stated when asked if he supports Nigeria’s separation. “I taught that everyone should rise from their place wherever they are with my costume.”
“My costume was rising sun, not Biafra, Ojukwu propagated rising sun making it as a symbol for Igbos as they like to progress. If you look at Africa, Igbos are on the top because of their personal effort, not the government.
“The Government has not done anything for the Igbo man, they strive to do better on their own
“The earlier we split as a country, the better for us. The percentage of Fulani ‘Buhari’s people in the workforce are 98%. The Igbo man has been placed on nothing.
“Benue is in turmoil, people are killing there but they want Fulani herdsmen to continue to do their business.
“It is draconian, you can’t force people in a big country like this. We need to rally our people from the same tribe to get to a peaceful approach in this country.”
Shedding light on his arrest, Chiwetalu Agu added that he was not tortured while being questioned by some senior army officers before he was moved to DSS custody.
“They interviewed me for a whole day, the senior army officers were civil and did not get anything that was incriminating from my phone before they handed me over to DSS.
“They didn’t manhandle me till I got to Abuja office where I stayed for two days.
“I’m a child of God, I’m not a criminal all they saw in my phone was all about God, humanity and nothing incriminating,” he said.
