Nollywood actress, Amarachi Igidimbah has cried for the release of veteran actor, Chinwetalu Agu who was arrested on Thursday for wearing a Biafran flag outfit.
Naija News understands that soldiers from the Nigerian Military apprehended Chinwetalu Agu for wearing a Biafran flag outfit.
The soldiers proceeded to search his vehicle and fired some shots into the air to scare away onlookers.
Reacting to the reports, the Anambra-based movie star took to her Instagram handle to call out the government for using its military to intimidate the 65-year-old actor.
According to her, it is unfair to treat a man such as the veteran actor in such a manner for an outfit. She noted that no one is safe as the government intimidates anyone regardless of his/her dedication to service to their country.
She pleaded to the government to let the 65-year-old actor go, adding that he does not deserve such humiliation.
Sharing a video of herself begging for the release of arrested veteran actor, Chinwetalu Agu, she wrote;
“If a Public Figure , An old veteran like Uncle Chiwetalu Agu @chiwetaluagu could be assaulted and rough handled like this publicly , THEN WHO ARE YOU ??? !!! ………….. The tyranny that we face in this Sugarcoated Military Democratic Regime is a horrible Scary Night mare that we don’t seem to be waking Up from 😭😭😭😭 ………… @nigeriaarmydiary PLEASE RELEASE CHIWETALU AGU NOW !!!”
