Popular Nollywood actor and musician Moses Armstrong, has been arrested and detained by Akwa Ibom State police for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl.
In a discussion with Qed.ng on Thursday, June 16, the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed his detention and described the case as “a very severe one.”
According to the president of the actors guild of Nigeria, the state’s First Lady, Martha Udom Emmanuel, is handling the case through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative.
The accusation, according to the AGN president, is a sad development because it involves one of their own. However, he stated that such a crime will not be tolerated by the organization.
Armstrong until his arrest was a Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.
