Ozekhome (SAN) stated that Agu was freed after his phones were examined and nothing incriminating was discovered.

The 65-year-old actor was apprehended by the Nigerian Army last Thursday in Onitsha, Anambra State, for donning Biafra regalia.

Soldiers apprehended him on Upper Iweka Bridge as he was participating in a charity event.

Agu was, however, released by the Nigerian Army on Friday, but was re-arrested by DSS operatives.

The secret police was said to have transferred the veteran actor to Abuja for interrogation.

However, Ozekhome said Agu committed no offence to warrant his arrest.

He disclosed this in a statement he signed titled: ‘Chiwetalu Agu Released By DSS’.

“Several interactions were held by the chambers with the DSS operatives, who were, however, very civil and very cooperative.

“Agu was released this (Tuesday) evening to Steve Eboh and Monalisa Chinda (Director of Media, Actors Guild of Nigeria), by the DSS at their headquarters in Abuja, after a careful search on his phones showed nothing incriminating,” he said.
