The Nigerian Army has confirmed the arrest of popular Nollywood veteran actor, Chiwetelu Agu, who appeared in public in a full Biafra regalia. Speaking on Thursday evening, the Director of Army Public Relations, Brig Gen Onyema Nwachukwu, stated that Chiwetelu Agu was arrested because he canvassed support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. In this regard, this article tend to present two lessons to learn after the Nigerian Army (NA) revealed its reasons for arresting the veteran Nollywood actor.
NIGERIANS SHOULD LEARN TO AVOID USING THEIR FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT AND EXPRESSION TO INCITE VIOLENCE IN THE SOCIETY.
According to the Nigerian Army, Chiwetalu Agu was demonstrating uncharitable disposition to negate peace and security in the region by putting on the Biafra regalia in public, hence the need for his arrest for proper interrogation. Nigerians should learn not to use their freedom of movement and expression to incite the public to cause mayhem or break down of law and order. Our inalienable rights as Nigerians should be exercised within the limits of the law.
NIGERIANS SHOULD LEARN TO ABSTAIN FROM ANYTHING THAT'S HAS BEEN PROSCRIBED IN THE COUNTRY.
Wearing a full Biafra regalia in public was a way Chiwetelu Agu used to show his support for IPOB. Moreover, the spokesperson to the Nigerian Army has clearly stated that IPOB remains a proscribed group in the country and anyone seen with anything that has to deal with the proscribed group will have to face the consequences of the law. Hence, Nigerians must learn not to associate themselves with anything that is proscribed in the country.
