The well-known Nollywood actor, Moses Armstrong, was detained by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 16-year-old girl.
The news broke after Emeka Rollas, the National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), confirmed Armstrong Moses' arrest during an interview with Qed.ng.
Mr. Emeka describes the case as "very severe," adding that it is being addressed by Martha Udom Emmanuel, the state's First Lady, through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative.
In his words, "I and the organization I represent would not stand for getting engaged with a youngster as young as 16 years old."
This is an extremely tragic development affecting one of our own, but I wouldn't say it's the end of the world.
Until his arrest, Moses Armstrong was a Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.
