Nigerian actress, Evan Okoro has reacted to the brutal treatment meted out on the veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu for wearing an outfit designed with the Biafran flag.
In an earlier report, it was revealed that the Nigerian Army personnel arrested, brutalized and dragged the movie star out of his car due to his outfit which depicted the fact that he is pro-Biafran; a movement proscribed by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Reacting to the video, the actress has kicked against such brutal treatment while lamenting over the level of embarrassment he was put through.
Captioning the post, she wrote:
“Nooo💔💔💔💔 this is totally unacceptable, what kind of embarrassment is this, @chiefchiwetaluagu no naa😭😭😭😭😭 he is an old man for goodness sake😭😭😭😭”
Chinwetalu Agu has reportedly been assaulted by military officers in Anambra State for wearing a Biafra-themed outfit.
Chinwetalu was driving his production van around Upper Iweka Road in Onitsha when the officers stopped him and reportedly questioned him for wearing the Biafran regalia. He was asked to step down from his van which had “Chinwetalu Films” embossed on the vehicle.
Eyewitnesses say there was a verbal exchange between the movie star and the military men who wanted to arrest him.
Things reportedly got ugly as the veteran actor was manhandled and beaten by the officer who failed to reason with him.
