“I have received a confirmed report that Moses Armstrong was arrested, although the reason for his arrest is under investigation. However, he was taken to court on Thursday, and the court would determine what played out,” he said.
“I only heard that he was arrested for an alleged rape case, but I cannot independently verify how true the rape case is until proven otherwise by the court. As it stands now, it is an allegation levelled at him until the court finds him guilty or not.”
