The people of Anambra have expressed various reactions following the arrest of a popular Nollywood actor, Chinwetalu Agu, by soldiers after he was spotted putting on the Biafra symbol/regalia in public. The incident happened on Thursday at the upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra state, and the video of the incident has spread quickly.
Chinwetalu Agu is also an indigene of the south-eastern part of the country, and though he was trying to represent his people, it was his fault that he got arrested by the Nigerian police. Regardless of any reason whatsoever, the IPOB group is a group that the federal government frowns at, so putting on their regalia is the same as going against the law. In my opinion, the fault is coming from Chinwetalu Agu for the reasons below.
A Man of His Caliber Wearing Biafra Regalia Could Promote A Biafra Protest Before Anambra's Upcoming Elections
Anambra's upcoming elections are fast approaching and the date has been fixed for November 6th. The state government has to put things in place for the preparation of the elections. Unknown gunmen are still terrorising the state and the security agencies are yet to fully solve that problem.
Actor Chinwetalu Agu wearing the Biafra regalia could stir up a protest from IPOB due to his famous personality and this could harm the upcoming Anambra elections. For that reason, the Nigerian soldiers had to arrest him quickly to prevent such chaos in the future.
