The Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has secured the release of actor Chiwetalu Agu from the Department of State Services (DSS).

Agu was arrested by DSS hours after he was released by the Nigerian Army last week.

AGN‘s National President, Emeka Rollas, confirmed this development.

In a statement, Rollas said the guild has yet again secured the actor’s release.

“On behalf of the Guild, I was at the DSS office with my colleague, the Senior special Assistant on Military Affairs and Inter Governmental Relations to the AGN President Steve Eboh to receive Mr. Agu today.

“The elated veteran Actor thanked God for surviving the ordeal and commended the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria headed by Ejezie Emeka Rollas for their relentless efforts in securing his release from the detention,” the statement read.
