The Department of State Services (DSS), has maintained that justice must take its course, after it arrested veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu.
Agu was first arrested on Thursday by soldiers in Anambra State, for wearing an outfit themed after the flag of Biafra – a development that sparked widespread outrage on social media.
However, he was released about 24 hours later.
But the DSS claimed that the Nigerian army handed the actor to the unit for further questioning.
Speaking on the development, Peter Afunaya, DSS spokesman, admitted that Agu is currently in the custody of the secret police.
Although Afunaya declined further comments on the matter, he said the DSS will ensure that justice take its course.
“The army handed him over to us for further questioning. As far as we’re concerned, justice will take its course,” Afunaya told TheCable Lifestyle.
