Moses Armstrong, a popular Nollywood actor, was detained by the Akwa Ibom State Police for reportedly rapping a 16-year-old girl.
NewsReport gathered that the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed the arrest and called the situation as “a terrible event.”
The case is being handled by the state’s first lady, Martha Udom Emmanuel, through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative, according to the AGN president.
According to Emeka Rollas, getting involved with a child as young as 16 years is something he and members of the association condemn.
He said: “To get involved with a child as young as 16yrs, is not something I and the association I represent, would 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.”
According to PM News, the victim is Moses Armstrong’s family relative, who was put under his care.
Moses Armstrong before his arrest was a special assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.
