Veteran Nollywood actor, Chinwetalu Agu, who was re-arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) for interrogation after being initially released by the Nigerian Army, has been flown to Abuja as part of investigations for allegedly inciting members of the public.
Chinwetalu Agu was first arrested by the Nigerian Army on October 7, 2021, around Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State and was subsequently handed over to the DSS for investigation and prosecution.
However, a relative of the Nollywood actor told journalists that the family had been denied access to him.
The relative, who wished to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the case, said Agu was first moved from Anambra to Enugu and then to Abuja.
He said attempts to see him in Abuja were rebuffed by the DSS.
“We spent two days trying to ascertain his whereabouts. We were later informed that he was moved to Enugu and then Abuja.
“We heard that the idea is to move him away from the South-East. We have made efforts to see him, but the DSS has not granted us access. Even the lawyers have not been allowed to reach him,” the relative said.
