After the men of the Nigerian army arrested Nollywood actor Chinwetalu Agu and took him to their camp, a new video surfaced online where he stated that he wasn't putting on a Biafran regalia but was only wearing a civil dress, as he pointed to the inscription on the regalia which has 'rising sun'. He further added that he bought 10 thousand naira worth of bread, with the notion of giving it to the public before his arrest.
See the video link below.
One thing was, however, observed from what he said in the video that went viral.
He denied campaigning for Biafra or supporting the movement.
From the video, Chinwetalu Agu maintained that he wasn't putting on a Biafra regalia since he's very much educated not to try such in public, but rather pointed fingers at the inscription on his dress. This is a point where many people from the IPOB group expected him to actually support the movement, but he didn't.
However, many people know what the regalia stands for, but his speech about wearing civil dress instead of the traditional one, apparently makes it obvious that he may be trying to save his head due to the fact that the IPOB group is a proscribed one.
Moreover, do you think he's right to have denied wearing Biafran regalia?
