Human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, has disclosed why the Department of State Services, DSS, released Nollywood veteran, Chiwetalu Agu.

Ozekhome said Agu was released after they searched his phones and found nothing incriminating.

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

He was arrested in Upper Iweka Bridge by soldiers while carrying out a charity exercise.

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

The secret police were 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: Released By DSS’.

“Several interactions were held by the chambers with the 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.
