Soldiers have reportedly arrested popular Nollywood Actor, Chinwetalu Agu in Upper Iweka area of Onitsha, Anambra state for putting on an outfit with colours of the Biafran Flag.

A viral video that made the rounds on Thursday afternoon, Agu’s vehicle was stopped by soldiers who wasted no time in dragging him out of his bus.

When a crowd started building up, the security operatives were said to have released warning shots in the air.

In the viral footage, Agu was seen being manhandled by the soldiers.

Recall that the actor was seen spotting the same outfit, which looks like something made out of the Biafran flag with some Nigerians expressing concerns about the consequence of the popular thespian's action.

The Biafran flag is the official emblem of South-East Separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, led by Nnamdi Kanu.

They have been pushing for the eastern part of Nigeria to become a separate country and their campaign has been fraught with violent attacks and abductions in the region.

The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian Government.

Below are photos and a video clip from the scene:
