Reno Omokri Reacts To Arrest Of Actor, Chiwetalu Agu By Nigerian Army

Reading Time: < 1 minute
Reno Omokri has lambasted the Nigerian army for arresting popular Nollywood star, Chinwetalu Agu.

Omokri, a former presidential aide stated that Nigerian Army should arrest Sheikh Ahmad Gumi and the Miyetti Allah organizations for threatening Nigerians instead of the actor.

Omokri made the statement in response to the detention of Nollywood legend Chiwetalu Agu for promoting Biafra.

Agu was assaulted by Nigerian Army personnel because he was dressed in Biafra clothes.

The event occurred while the movie legend was walking across the Upper Iweka Bridge in Anambra.

Two soldiers barged in, wrestled Agu to the ground, and took him away.

Agu was reportedly sharing food to the less privileged persons when government forces stopped him.

Speaking on the incident, Brig. Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Army Public Relations said the veteran actor was apprehended for inciting members of the public and soliciting support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

However, Omokri said the arrest of Agu while Gumi and Miyetti Allah members were free showed lack of justice in Nigeria.

In a series of tweets, Omokri wrote: “Miyetti Allah hold press conferences to threaten violence on Nigerians and make provocative statements to the effect that Southern Nigeria belongs to them.
