What Okonkwo Said In 2016 When He Was Accused Of Supporting IPOB That Agu Should Also Do

Nollywood veteran actor, Chiwelatu Agu was recently arrested by Nigerian soldiers for wearing a Biafra flag outfit. The incident happened in Onitsha after Chiwelatu was spotted buying bread at a market. He was then allegedly attacked and taken away for promoting IPOB which has already been termed a terrorist organisation by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Based on normal circumstances, Chiwelatu Agu will be detained before being charged. If guilty then he may go to prison. Another veteran actor, Kenneth Okonkwo was accused of supporting Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB after he was spotted in his lawyer's garb in 2016.

Kenneth Okonkwo quickly released a statement to deny involvement in Biafra. In his words: "I'm not in support of Biafra, I believe in one Nigeria."

If Chiwelatu Agu can make it clear that he stands and believes in one Nigeria. Then so many charges will be dropped against him. Even though Chiwelatu Agu has already been arrested, a statement of severance in IPOB will go a long way in preventing him from going to prison.
