Nollywood actor, Moses Armstrong, who was accused of defiling a minor, has denied the charges levelled against him.
Naija News recalls that Armstrong, a former aide to Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state, was arrested last month for allegedly raping a minor he adopted.
He was charged with rape, intimidation, conspiracy and supplying drugs or instructed to procure abortion. He was sent to prison by the court.
On August 11, a High court in the state granted the Nollywood actor bail.
His friends who came out enmass to welcome him after his release also took to social media to celebrate his release.
In a post shared on his Facebook page on August 16, Armstrong stated that he thank God he went to prison and God went with him.
He also said that he was not guilty of the crimes against him.
Recall that Armstrong lost his wife and colleague, Rita Armstrong in 2018.
Rita, according to reports, died from spinal cord injuries she sustained from an accident.
The mother of two was returning to her husband’s residence in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state from Lagos on Saturday, February 3, 2018.
The Akwa Ibom Transport Company (AKTC) bus conveying her got involved in a ghastly crash at the Ugbogui axis of Benin-Ore-Lagos Expressway.
