Actor, Moses Armstrong arrested for alleged rape
Nigerian actor, Moses Armstrong has been arrested by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly raping a 16-year-old female.
Reacting to the development, the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, described the case as "a very serious one."
"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.
Rollas revealed that the case is being handled by the first lady of Akwa Ibom State, Martha Udom Emmanuel through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative.
Amstrong is currently the Special Assistant to Gov. Udom of Akwa Ibom.
