Chiwetalu Agu Gains Freedom After DSS Finds Nothing Incriminating

Nollywood veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu, who was arrested for donning Biafran outfits, has reunited with his family after his freedom was secured from the Department of State Services (DSS).

Newsrand had reported that some soldiers on Thursday, October 7, 2021, took Agu into custody after being seen sharing bread in Biafran outfits.

Newsrand understands that the Biafran flag is the official emblem of the South-East Separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu.

Since its emergence, the group has been pushing for the eastern part of Nigeria to become a separate country.

The group’s campaign led to a series of bloodshed, which eventually resulted in the arrest of Kanu.

With the help of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Agu’s release was secured on Tuesday, October 12, and he has reunited with his family.

Disclosing Agu’s freedom, Human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) said the thespian was let go after nothing incriminating was found in his home.

“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 stated.

Police Explain Reason For Tonto Dikeh’s ex-lover, Prince Kpokpogiri’s Arrest

Police Explain Reason For Tonto Dikeh’s ex-lover, Prince Kpokpogiri's Arrest

The police have explained that one Prince Kpokpogri, the estranged lover of Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, was arrested for attempting to cause a breach of the peace at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Maitama, Abuja, on Monday, October 18, 2021.

The suspect was said to have visited the luxury hotel with two police guards in a bid to retrieve a Lexus SUV parked by Dikeh, who lodged there.

He allegedly blocked the vehicle with his car and when cautioned, his police escort reportedly threatened to shoot a female worker of the hotel.

The hotel management subsequently invited the police who whisked all the parties to the Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.

Confirming this development, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, FCIID, Joseph Egbunike, said he directed a Commissioner of Police to arrest Kpokpogri following reports of a threatening situation at the hotel.

According to him, the police escorts were being detained for failing to bring the situation at the hotel under control, adding that Kpokpogri has been released on bail.

Dikeh and her erstwhile lover have been trending in the news lately following their messy break-up with the latter accusing the actress of promiscuity while she described him as a blackmailer.

The DIG dismissed reports that he arrested Kpokpogri to please Tonto Dikeh.

He stated, “I only met the suspect and complainant for the first time yesterday (Monday); I don’t know where they came from. It has to do with the criminal issue that happened at Transcorp Hilton Hotel. We went there to do a threat analysis that somebody was trying to cause a situation there.

“So, I sent my commissioner to go and bring them only to be surprised to see the two parties. We interviewed them and detained my policemen who were there and could not contain the situation. They are in the cell now. I know by today, everybody must have calmed down and reflected on what they did and what they did not do.”

Egbunike added, “The suspect has been released on bail, he is entitled to bail. Besides, the matter we are treating is the disturbance of public space, not the other one of their relationship which another commissioner is treating. All those things would be resolved by the commissioner handling the matter.

“When a matter is subsisting at the police station, there is no need of taking matters into your hands. If the matter has been concluded and you are not satisfied, you make your case. But when you go to a public space and there’s panic, we’ll have no choice but to step in.”
