Donned in a black outfit with a traditional red cap to match, Chiwetalu seemed relieved to interact freely again.
According to Ikeja Bird Media, Ozekhome said the DSS had no reason for keeping the actor after a careful search on his phones showed nothing incriminating.
The lawyer added that the actor committed no offence to warrant his arrest. Chiwetalu was arrested by the DSS for putting on a Biafran outfit.
The lawyer, however, intervened in the matter after been briefed by representatives of the Actors Guild of Nigeria who asked him to step in.
