Moses Armstrong, a popular Nollywood actor and singer, was detained by Akwa Ibom State police for allegedly rapping a 16-year-old girl.
In an interview with Qed.ng on Thursday, June 16, the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed his detention.
The case is being handled by Martha Udom Emmanuel, the state’s First Lady, through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative, according to him.
The accusation was a sad development, according to the AGN president, because it included one of their own. He did say, however, that such a crime would be unacceptable to the organization.
“Getting associated with a youngster as young as 16 years old is not something that the organization stands for. This is a very unfortunate situation concerning one of our own, but I don’t want to say anything more about it “he stated
Armstrong worked as a Special Assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State till his incarceration.
