Reno Omokri, a former presidential media aide, has reacted to the assault and arrest of Nollywood veteran Chiwetalu Agu by Nigerian troops yesterday in Anambra.

The social activist and lawyer stated that Nigerian Army should arrest Sheikh Ahmad Gumi and the Miyetti Allah organizations for threatening Nigerians.

Omokri made the statement in response to the detention of Nollywood legend Chiwetalu Agu for promoting Biafra.

Agu was assaulted by Nigerian Army personnel because he was dressed in Biafra clothes.

The event occurred while the movie legend was walking across the Upper Iweka Bridge in Anambra.

Two soldiers barged in, wrestled Agu to the ground, and took him away.

Agu was reportedly sharing food to the less privileged persons when government forces stopped him.

Reacting, Omokri said the arrest of Agu while Gumi and Miyetti Allah members were free showed lack of justice in Nigeria.

In a series of tweets, Omokri wrote: “Miyetti Allah hold press conferences to threaten violence on Nigerians and make provocative statements to the effect that Southern Nigeria belongs to them.

“Soldiers and DSS don’t arrest them. Chiwetalu Agu wore a Biafran flag and was arrested. Where is the justice?

“Sheikh Gumi campaigns for terrorists and sings their praises. Even telling them on camera that Christian soldiers are the ones killing them, thus they should not kill Muslims.

“He is free while Chiwetalu Agu was arrested? Nigeria can’t have peace without justice!”
