Actor Moses Armstrong has denied an allegation of raping a 16-year-old girl.
Qed.ng reported that the actor was charged with rape, conspiracy, intimidation, and supplying of drugs to procure an abortion on a minor.
The Judge, Ntong Ntong, after hearing submissions from both counsels upheld the defense counsel’s application and granted bail to Moses in the sum of N5 million.
In a statement shared on Facebook on Tuesday, the Akwa Ibom actor said he did not and has never raped anyone. He also thanked those who believed he was innocent.
He wrote: “Nothing Pass God. If you believe, you will receive. Nothing Pass God. I did not rape anybody. I don’t rape. I have never raped. And I will never rape. I’m back stronger and better…
“I’m happy I went to prison, God went with me. The experience is awesome. You will hear it soon. Blessings to all of you Angels that believed in me. Love you all deeply.”
