Popular Nollywood actor/singer, Moses Armstrong has been apprehended by men of the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 16-year-old girl.
Confirming his arrest, the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, during a chat interpreted the case as “a very serious one”.
He said it is being overseen by the First Lady of the state, Martha Udom Emmanuel through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative.
The AGN president added that the indictment was a sad development, as it involves one of their own.
However, he said the organisation will not tolerate such a crime.
“To get involved with a child as young as 16yrs, is not something I and the association I represent, would stand for.
“This is a very sad development involving a member of ours, but I wouldn’t want to comment any further on this case,” he said.
Armstrong until his arrest was a Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.
