SP Odiko Macdon, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), verified this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Uyo on Monday.

According to Macdon, the Police Command has been besieged with questions regarding actor Moses Armstrong.

He stated that the actor was detained in the state on June 9th.

“The popular Nollywood actor and singer, Moses Armstrong, has been arrested by men of the Police Command for allegedly defiling a 16-year old girl in the state

“We arrested the Suspect based on an initial complaint of rape. We have done our preliminary findings and the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has taken over the case,” he said.

The suspect was no longer with the command, according to Macdon, but was taken to court by the DPP on June 20 and remanded accordingly.

Mr Emeka Rollas, the Guild’s National President, described the situation as “very severe.”

Mrs Martha Emmanuel, the governor’s wife, is handling it through her Family Empowerment and Youth Re-Orientation Path Initiative, he added (FEYReP).

The charge, according to Rollas, was a terrible development because it affected one of their own, and the organisation would not tolerate such a crime.

“To get involved with a child as young as 16 years 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 worked as a Special Assistant to Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel prior to his detention.

According to NAN, the guild has suspended the Nollywood actor in response to the accusation.
