The AGN (Actors Guild of Nigeria) revealed that they had managed to secure the release of the popular Nigerian Actor and Comedian, Chinwetalu Agu from Army Custody. The Veteran Actor was arrested on the 8th of October ‘because of his clothing’.
The Actors Guild of Nigeria on confirming the release of the Nigerian Actor took to their Instagram Page to caption “The National President of the Actors Guild Of Nigeria, Ejezie Emeka Rollas has secured the release of the Nigerian Actor, Chinwetalu Agu from the custody of the Nigerian Army”.
“The National President of the AGN also commended the efforts of the Leadership of the Pan Igbo Socio-Cultural, Ohanaeze Ndigbo for their collaborative efforts. However, The National President has debunked the earlier statement credited to him on the Arrest of Nigerian Actor, Chinwetalu Agu as he has not made any official statement on the issue since his arrest.”
The Nigerian Army has not officially released any Info on the Whereabouts or release of the Veteran actor. Chinwetalu Agu was arrested by some Military men at Onitsha, Anambra State as he claimed he was only sharing Bread.
Shortly after his arrest, the Army released a statement stating that they had arrested the Nigerian Actor because he was instigating members of the public to engage in a rally and support the Outlawed IPOB Group.
Chinwetalu Agu was wearing the Biafran Flag with the Rising Sun Logo (As you can see on the Photo) when he was arrested and that was why he was detained, he claimed that his outfit didn’t signify Biafra but only a Rising sun. In his words “Look, I can wear this dress, this signifies ‘A Rising Sun’ not Biafra or Eastern Security Network. With my Education, I Know areas to go to and areas not to go to.”
What ‘The Rising Sun’ Truly Signifies
The Rising Sun is a very Important Feature of the Biafran Flag, it’s the official Emblem of the Indigenous People of Biafra. The Flag contains three colours which are lined Horizontally (Red, Black and Green respectively) and a Rising Sun with a Bar directly below.
