There are reports that Nollywood veteran Chiwetalu Agu has been flown to Abuja by the Department of State Services.

According to SaharaReporters, the movie star has been flown to Abuja as part of investigations for allegedly inciting members of the public.

A relative of the Nollywood actor told Punch that the family had been denied access to him.

"We spent two days trying to ascertain his whereabouts. We were later informed that he was moved to Enugu and then Abuja," the relative said.

“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."

It would be recalled that the movie veteran was assaulted by men of the Nigeria Army on Thursday, October 7, 2021, after he was spotted wearing a Biafran flag outfit.

He was detained and later released.

However, he was immediately arrested by men of the DSS after his release for the army's custody.
