The Nigerian army has denied assaulting Chiwetalu Agu, the Nollywood actor who donned a Biafra outfit.

In a viral video yesterday, the film star appeared to have been confronted in Onitsha by soldiers for wearing an outfit themed after the separatist state.

Unverified accounts by locals in the south-eastern state of Anambra who witnessed the incident had claimed the army publicly manhandled Chiwetalu, searched his vehicle, and fired shots to scare off the crowd that gathered.

But in a statement signed by Onyema Nwachukwu, its press director, the army said he was only arrested and detained and not “brutalised”.
