Ghanaian Actress, Akuapem Poloo To Spend 90 Days In Prison After Failed Appeal Over Controversial Photo
In what comes as quite shocking reports, controversial Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo, is set to return to jail where she will be spending the next 90 days.
Recall that earlier this year in April, the actress was sentenced to 90 days in prison for sharing a nude photo with her son on social media.
Last year, the controversial movie star went viral after sharing a nude photoshoot with her son to mark his birthday. Akuapem’s son turned seven years old on June 30, 2020, and the actress had quite the unusual photoshoot with him.
The often controversial actress and video vixen shared the above photo of her stark naked squatting in front of her son who was only wearing underwear.
However, director of Child Rights International in Ghana, Bright Appiah then filed a petition against the mother of one that ultimately led to her arrest by police.
Poloo would then be charged with offences bordering on publication of obscene materials and engaging in domestic violence. The actress would plead guilty to all charges.
On April 16, 2021, she was summarily sentenced to three months in prison. The Circuit court during it’s judgment noted that this was to serve as a deterrent to others in the country.
However, shortly after her imprisonment, she was granted bail and released from prison as her lawyers appealed the judgment handed down to her, which they claimed was too harsh for the crime committed.
On April 21, 2021, Poloo was granted bail in the sum of Ghc80,000 (N5,372,976) alongside two sureties.
The actress is now set for a return to prison after an Accra High Court sitting today, December 1, 2021, upheld the Circuit court’s ruling that she be sentenced to 90 days behind bars.
Justice Ruby Aryeetey during the hearing stated opined that the circuit court’s judgement was not manifestly excessive as Poloo’s lawyers had argued.
It was then ordered that her eight-year-old son be put in the custody of a competent family member pending the time his mother completes her sentence at the Nsawam Prison.
