The veteran was arrested at Upper Iweka in Anambra state on Wednesday, October 7, for wearing a “Biafra regalia” and allegedly campaigning for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra and Eastern Security Network.
Upon interrogation, Chinwetalu Agu countered claims of soliciting support for the group and stated that his outfit was a civil dress and not related to Biafra. According to him, he was wearing a dress with “the rising sun”. Watch here.
Reacting to this on Instagram, actress Shan George stated that he was clearly wearing a Biafra flag and should own it with his full chest. According to her, there is nothing wrong in fighting for one’s freedom and Chinwetalu Agu shouldn’t have cowered.
“My dear brother, u r clearly wearing a Biafra flag, and u should own it with ur full chest. I don’t get all d rising sun English u r speaking. I personally see nothing wrong in a certain pple fighting for their freedom. Nigeria fought for theirs from d British before 1960. Scotland, etc fought for theirs too, at least u were not carrying any arms, fighting for freedom peacefully shouldn’t be a crime, Own your Fight/Struggle wit your full chest.”
