Veteran movie actor, Chiwetalu Agu arrested recently has stated that it is better for Nigeria to split up than remain together.
“The earlier we split the bettter,” he said this when asked if he is in support of Nigeria splitting up during a phone interview with TheBroadway TV.
The actor was arrested by operatives of the Nigerian Army and Department of State Service (DSS) recently for wearing a costume branded in support of secessionist agitator IPOB and arrested for allegedly calling for public support for the group.
However, during the interview, the actor again explained that his costume was about preaching why everybody should rise from their position wherever they are.
“We all must rise, I preached that everyone should rise from their position wherever they are with my costume.
“My costume was rising sun, not Biafra, Ojukwu propagated rising sun making it as a symbol for Igbos as they like to progress. If you look at Africa, Igbos are on the top because of their personal effort, not the government.
“The Government has not done anything for the Igbo man, they strive to do better on their own
“The earlier we split as a country, the better for us.
