Veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu has declared support for those asking for Nigeria to split for peace to reign.

Chiwetalu Agu said this while speaking with Broadway Tv.

Recall that the actor was arrested by soldiers in Onitsha, Anambra State, for wearing Biafra regalia. He was then moved to DSS custody in Abuja where he stayed for days before his release.

When asked if he is in support of Nigeria to split, Chiwetalu Agu said: “We all must rise, I preached that everyone should rise from their position wherever they are with my costume.

“My costume was rising sun, not Biafra, Ojukwu propagated rising sun making it as a symbol for Igbos as they like to progress. If you look at Africa, Igbos are on the top because of their personal effort, not the government.

“The Government has not done anything for the Igbo man, they strive to do better on their own

“The earlier we split as a country, the better for us. The percentage of Fulani ‘Buhari’s people in the workforce are 98%. The Igbo man has been placed on nothing.

“Benue is in turmoil, people are killing there but they want Fulani herdsmen to continue to do their business.

“It is draconian, you can’t force people in a big country like this. We need to rally our people from the same tribe to get to a peaceful approach in this country.”

Shedding light on his arrest, Chiwetalu Agu added that he was not tortured while being questioned by some senior army officers before he was moved to DSS custody.

“They interviewed me for a whole day, the senior army officers were civil and did not get anything that was incriminating from my phone before they handed me over to DSS.

“They didn’t manhandle me till I got to Abuja office where I stayed for two days.

“I’m a child of God, I’m not a criminal all they saw in my phone was all about God, humanity and nothing incriminating,” he said.
