It was gathered that the actor was in Onitsha on a charity mission where he regularly gifts the less privileged with food items when he was arrested by soldiers.

In a viral video after his arrest, Chiwetalu Agu said he was sharing bread with hungry Nigerians and not demonstrating for anyone to join Biafra.

According to him, his outfit is just a dress with a rising sun and not anyway representing the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

He said: “What I’m wearing is a civil dress. This is not Biafran wear it is a rising sun and not an Eastern Security Outfit. I know where to go with this outfit.

“This sun on the dress I’m wearing is just a rising sun because I believe I must rise.

“I was sharing bread when they came to arrest me, I was not organising any demonstration. Is it wrong to feed the hungry Nigerians?”
