Moses Armstrong Suspended

KanyiDaily had reported that the popular actor was arrested by the police a few days ago for allegedly defiling the minor about three years ago.

The alleged victim, who was said to have been schooling outside Nigeria, returned to the country recently and thereafter petitioned the wife of the state governor with respect to the rape allegation.

In a statement signed by the AGN Director of Communications and veteran actress, Monalisa Chinda, AGN President, Emeka Rollas said that Armstrong has been suspended indefinitely following the investigation of the guild concerning the allegation.

The statement reads, “Actor Moses Armstrong has been placed on indefinite suspension by the National Executive Committee of the Actors Guild of Nigeria over his arrest by the police on allegation of raping a minor.

“In a suspension letter signed by the National President Ejezie Emeka Rollas, Armstrong’s suspension was based on facts emanating from the preliminary investigations conducted by the Guild on the allegation.

” Actors Guild of Nigeria has been in the forefront of advocacy against violation of women, such as rape, molestation and all form of abuse therefore, the allegation against Moses Armstrong is capable of tarnishing the good image and reputation of our noble Guild if urgent action is not taken in accordance with the constitutional provisions of the Guild.

“The National President, Ejezie Emeka Rollas, said it is a sad development but nobody is above the law, especially on rape and abuse of women.

“‘Though it is our duty to protect our members when it comes to serious allegations, the law will have to take its course,’ the National President concluded.

“While on suspension the actor is not expected to participate in any film production or Guild activities.

“In addition, The National/State Chapter Task Forces have been mandated to monitor all film locations and production sets in the country as violation of the suspension rules may lead to further stiff disciplinary measures as stipulated by the AGN constitution.”

KanyiDaily recalls that another Nollywood actor, Baba Ijesha has also been in a protracted legal battle involving rape allegations and a minor.
