Chiwetalu Agu, embattled popular Nollywood actor, is reportedly been detained by agents of the State Security Service (SSS).

Nigerian writer, Chiagozie Nwonwu, disclosed this Friday afternoon, hours after Mr Agu, who spent the night at the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, was freed.

“Chiwetalu Agu is still not free. He is with DSS now,” Mr Nwonwu posted on Facebook. “Colleagues say they are looking for a top lawyer to bail him.”

Trouble began on Thursday when he went on a charity mission at  Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, adorning an outfit traceable to colors of Biafran agitators.

He was brutalised by soldiers and taken into custody until when he was released on Friday.
