The Department of State Services (DSS), has denied family access to veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu, who was re-arrested and taken to Abuja.
Recall that Chiwetalu Agu was first arrested by the Nigerian Army on October 7, 2021, at Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, for wearing a Biafra outfit while distributing bread and other items to the poor, and was later arrested by DSS the following day.
He was first moved from Anambra to 82 division of Nigeria Army, Enugu and then to DSS headquarters, Abuja.
A relative, who wished to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the case, said attempts to see him in Abuja were rebuffed by the DSS.
“We spent two days trying to ascertain his whereabouts. We were
later informed that he was moved to Enugu and then Abuja.
“We heard that the idea is to move him away from the South-East.
“We have made efforts to see him, but the DSS has not granted us access. Even the lawyers have not been allowed to reach him,” the relative said.
