Legit.ng had earlier reported that the actor was beaten and arrested in Onitsha by soldiers for wearing an outfit that had the Biafra flag on it.

Chiwetalu was also seen arguing his case with the soldiers as he insists that the meaning of the design on his outfit is a rising sun and not a Biafran flag.

Nigerians speak

"Chiwetalu Agu made the mistake by wearing the Biafra attire. You can support Biafra with wisdom."

misschidel:

"U can’t even cover your own brother shame."

heywhy146:

"Can Biafra ever happen? Never!!!! Be wise don’t endanger your life. None of these is worth you risking your life and sanity. Those who died in the past for this struggle, what is their fate today? Nothing!!!"

terroalves_official:

"No matter what he was not suppose to wear that regarding all the tension , the police are right , if you wear anything like the Ambazonian Flag in Southern Cameroon you will be shot and killed by the military without any explanations , this is Africa let’s remember that ! No laws in Africa , I hope they release him soon."

Nigerian Army speaks on Chiwetalu Agu's arrest

A statement from the Nigerian Army spokesman, Onyema Nwachukwu, noted that Chiwetalu Agu was soliciting support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the commercial city, while dressed in their colours.

The army explained that Chiwetalu Agu demonstrated an uncharitable disposition to negate peace and security in Onitsha, hence, his arrest.

According to the army, the allegation that Chiwetalu was brutalized is false and should be disregarded accordingly.
