Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu manhandled by soldiers for wearing Biafra Flag outfit in Onitsha

Nigeria soldiers in Onitsha, Anambra State, on Wednesday manhandled Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, for wearing an outfit with Biafra inscriptions.

A video shared by his colleague, Rita Edochie, the 65-year-old Agu is seen around Upper Iweka Bridge donning the Biafra outfit and walking near a green bus when two armed soldiers wrestled him to the ground and dragged him.

It was gathered that the actor was in Onitsha on a charity mission where he regularly gifts the less privileged with food items when he was arrested by soldiers.

A small crowd also gathered to watch the scene even though they could not intervene because of the soldiers.

Agu, who is a supporter of the Biafra cause, had, in several videos, criticised the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari for marginalising Igbo.

Nigerian security forces have, in recent times, banned people from donning Biafra outfits, even as the South-East continues to face security challenges.
