Nigeria Army Releases Official Statement, Says Chinwetalu Agu Not Brutalized As Against Viral Videos, Arrested For Inciting Public Support For Proscribed IPOB, Dressed In Proscribed IPOB Attire
“Troops of Nigerian Army(NA) have arrested one Chiwetalu Agu while inciting members of the public and soliciting for support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Dressed in a very well known attire of the proscribed group, Chiwetalu Agu was picked up for questioning while inciting members of the public to join the proscribed group.
Though he attempted putting up some resistance when troops made effort to take him into custody, he was not assaulted or subjected to brutalization.
For the avoidance of doubt and emphasis, the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) remains proscribed .
Therefore, any individual or group seen to be projecting and advancing the cause or activities of the group is viewed as brazenly challenging the constitutionality of Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Chinwetalu Agu has clearly demonstrated uncharitable disposition to negate peace and security in the region, hence, he is taken into custody for preliminary investigation.
It is important to once again place on record that the allegation that he was brutalized is false and should be disregarded accordingly.
Efforts are ongoing to bring perpetrators of violence to book.”, ONYEMA NWACHUKWU, Brig. Gen. Director Army PR says on the 7th of October, 2021.
Does this photo taken in Army custody after arrest bear any IPOB inscription on it??
