Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, has been released from the custody of the Nigerian Army a day after he was detained for putting on an outfit with semblance to the Biafran flag.

This was made known via a video posted by Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, on his Instagram page, yesterday, where Agu was captured with two representatives from the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN). 

According to the video, Agu was released via the intervention of the AGN.

Although it was rumoured that Agu was re-arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) shortly after his release, the National President of the AGN, Ejezie Emeka Rollas, told The Guardian that he was not aware of the arrest.

He, however, commended the efforts of the leadership of the pan-Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo for their collaborative efforts in ensuring Agu’s release.
