Nollywood actor, Moses Armstrong, has been charged with rape, conspiracy, and supplying drugs or instruments to procure abortion.
Recall that the actor was arrested last month for allegedly raping a minor he adopted.
On Wednesday, August 11 2022 four charges were read to Armstrong in a State High Court sitting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
He reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail.
His counsel Emmanuel Pantaleon drew the court’s attention to his bail application filed on behalf of his client on July 25 and sought the leave of the court to proceed to entertain it.
The prosecution, I.U. Robert, an assistant state counsel, while opposing the bail application, cited relevant judicial authorities and urged the court to dismiss the application which he described as an “abuse of court process.”
The Judge, Ntong Ntong, after hearing submissions from both counsels upheld the defense counsel’s application and granted bail to Mr. Armstrong in the sum of N5 million.
