Moses Armstrong, the Nollywood actor, has been arrested by the police in Akwa Ibom state.


Abubakar Yakubu, national secretary of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), confirmed his arrest to TheCable Lifestyle on Thursday evening.

Yakubu, however, did not provide more information on the development or the basis for the actor’s arrest and detention.

When contacted, Emeka Rollas, the national president of the AGN, also didn’t immediately speak on the matter.


“You people will get a [press] release tomorrow morning. We’re investigating the matter,” the president said.

Odiko Macdon, the PRO of the Akwa Ibom police command, was also not forthcoming with details on the allegation.

Subsequent texts to his cell phone number had yet to receive any response as of when this report was filed.


Reports had surfaced on social media saying allegations of rape involving a minor were brought against the actor.

A native of Akwa Ibom, Armstrong is known for his role in such titles as ‘Immoral Act’ and ‘Tears in My Heart’.

He is a special assistant to Udom Emmanuel, the state governor.

It is understood that the actor lost Rita Amstrong, his wife who was an actress, in 2018.


She was said to have passed away from spinal cord injuries sustained from an accident.
