> The State Security Service (SSS) has confirmed having Chiwetalu Agu, a celebrated actor, assaulted and arrested by soldiers for putting on attire identical to the Biafran flags, in custody.
The Nigerian Army, despite trending video clip to the contrary, denied manhandling Mr Agu whom they accused of supporting the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).
Mr Agu, arrested on Thursday while on a charity mission at Upper Iweka area of Onitsha, Anambra State, denied the accusation and was freed Friday morning, after the Actors Guild of Nigeria intervened.
