Chiwetalu Agu, a prominent actor in Nigeria, has been arrested for allegedly aiding the proscribed separatist organisation IPOB.
Army spokesperson Onyema Nwachukwu accused the actor of “inciting members of the public and soliciting for support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).”
According to a statement by the Troops of the Nigerian Army, Chiwetalu Agu was arrested for inciting members of the public and soliciting for support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Chinwetalu Agu has definitely displayed an uncharitable inclination to undermine regional peace and security, and he has been arrested for a preliminary investigation.
While the NA recognizes the inalienable rights of the citizenry to freedom of movement and expression as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is apparently a violation for any individual or group to incite the public to cause mayhem or break down of law and order.
