Chinwetalu Agu, a veteran and well-known actor, was beaten up by Nigerian Army soldiers for wearing a Biafran flag attire.
Anambra state’s Upper Iweka area was the scene of the incident.
According to reports, Nigerian troops stopped the Nollywood stars and took him out of his vehicle for questioning.
In a video obtained by NaijaGenre, the actor can be seen getting out of his automobile, which bears the inscription “Chinwetalu Films.”
The automobile was then checked by security personnel before he was manhandled by troops who fired warning rounds to disperse the gathering.
Recall that Chinwetalu Agu recently flaunted the Biafra flag in a social media post.
The images of the 65-year-old actor dressed in half of a yellow sun outfit sparked outrage, with admirers fearing for his safety and telling authorities that nothing should be done to him for exercising his right to free speech.
Following the now-violent agitations by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the Federal Government banned the flying of the Biafra flag in the southeast.
