Why People Should Not Criticize The Nigerian Soldiers For The Arrest Of Chiwetalu Agu

The Nollywood actor Chiwetalu Agu was approached by soldiers in Onitsha, Anambra State today for donning a Biafra outfit. When two armed soldiers wrestle Agu to the ground and drag him away from the Upper Iweka Bridge, the video goes viral. In the video, Agu can be seen walking near a green bus while dressed in his Biafra outfit.

According to the source, the actor was in Onitsha on a charity expedition, during which he frequently distributes food items to the less fortunate, when he was apprehended by military personnel. Nigerian security forces have recently prohibited the wearing of Biafra uniforms, even though the country's southern region continues to have security issues.


However, in this article, I would like to emphasize why the citizens of Nigeria should not criticize the Nigerian soldiers for the arrest of Chiwetalu Agu.


Why should the Nigerian soldiers not be criticized?

According to my observations and my knowledge of politics, I think the Nigerian soldiers are quite doing their jobs. We all know that the Federal Government is not in support of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) allegations to separate Nigeria as a whole. The Federal Government has issued this warning to us that they don't want to see either the Biafra flag or their outfits in Nigeria. They are following the protocols of Nigeria's law and order in that case.

In my opinion, I would like us not to criticize the Nigerian soldiers for doing their jobs. Although they did not brutalize him, they only detained him for wearing the Biafra outfit. Chiwetalu Agu could easily be set free by colliding with the government rules.

What do you think of this article? Do you think the Nigerian soldiers are to be criticized after this information? Feel free to drop your opinions and thoughts on this article in the comment section below.
