The arrest of Chinwetalu Agu was carried out by the Nigerian Military and his arrest was as a result of him soliciting support for The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Now, the big question; Was Chinwetalu Agu overreacting by wearing a Biafra Uniform?
Recall that Chinwetalu Agu is not the first eastern celebrity neither is he the first Nollywood star to show support for the IPOB movement, but he was arrested.
A lot of people on social media have been showing support for IPOB, but they didn't go to the extent of wearing the symbol and walking freely on the road.
If all being equal, Chinwetalu Agu was kind of overreacting for putting on the Biafra flag and symbol on his clothes.

Not just that, he went out on the streets showing the people his outfit and soliciting for the Indigenous people of Biafra.
Chinwetalu Agu is a reputable man in the society for all his hard works in the Nigerian entertainment industry. Being an actor for years and achieving a lot is enough reason for people to look up to you.
A lot of people model Chinwetalu Agu and by going extra mile putting on the Biafra uniform has given people motive to also wear the Biafra uniform despite the disagreement with the Nigerian government.
Every citizen has the right to disagree with the administration of the country and ask for a change, but in the process, there are certain protocols to be followed.

Easterners should be very careful on the kind of outfits they wear because as it stands, the Nigerian government is taking necessary measures to eradicate anybody posing threat to the country or creating a state of emergency.
What are your thoughts, was Chinwetalu Agu overreacting by wearing a Biafra uniform?
