Nigerian Police Arrest Nollywood Actor Moses Armstrong For Allegedly Defiling 14-year-old Girl
Moses Armstrong, a Nollywood actor, has been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force’s Akwa Ibom State command for allegedly defiling a minor.
During an interview with Qed, the National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed his detention.
According to the report, Rollas described the matter as “very serious.”
Meanwhile the matter is being handled by Martha Udom Emmanuel, the state’s First Lady, through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative.
The claim, according to the AGN president, is a tragic event affecting one of their own, and the organization will not tolerate such a crime.
“To get involved with a child as young as 16 years, is something I and the association I represent, would not stand for and this is a very sad development involving a member of ours, but I wouldn’t want to comment any further on this case.
“As we chat, he is still in police custody,” Rollas was quoted as saying.
Moses Armstrong is a special assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State.
Rita Armstrong, Moses’ wife and also an actress, died in 2018.
Rita died as a result of injuries to her spinal cord caused in a car accident.
On Saturday, February 3, 2018, it was reported that the mother of two was returning from Lagos to her husband’s home in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, when the Akwa Ibom Transport Company (AKTC) bus carrying her was involved in a horrific crash along the Ugbogui axis of the Benin Ore Lagos Expressway.
