The Nigerian actor was apprehended on Thursday, October 7, by the Nigerian Army at Upper Iweka, Onitsha, Anambra state for putting on Biafra regalia.

He was then taken to 82 Division Enugu, where video emerged of him being questioned while sitting on the floor.

Following his arrest, a number of Nigerians, including his Nollywood colleagues, called for his release.

He was released today October 8, after the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria mediated.
