Nollywood actor Moses Armstrong has been suspended by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), for allegedly defiling a 16-year-old girl.
Before his suspension on Saturday, he was apprehended last week for allegedly harming the teenager.
The AGN Director of Communications, Monalisa Chinda, revealed the actor’s suspension in a statement made available on Saturday.
Chinda who wrote on behalf of AGN President, Emeka Rollas, disclosed that the endless suspension came to be important following an investigation by the guild on the rape allegation he had been charged with.
Emeka said, “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.
“Armstrong’s suspension was based on facts emanating from the preliminary investigations conducted by the Guild on the allegation.”
“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.”
