Akuapem Poloo has dominated the media airwaves for some time now. In fact, today, Friday, April 16, 2021 she has been the trending topic in town. It can be recalled that she posted some ‘nude’ photos of herself standing in front of her kid somewhere last year. What started as a simple critic of those photos has gone all the way to get her sentenced.
Human rights activists took up the issue and today in a trial she has been sentenced to 90 days in prison. This has sent social media ranting as many had pleaded that she should be granted bail. The appeals only got her a 90 days’ jail.
Sammy Gyamfi, the NDC National Communications Officer has reacted to the sentencing. In a tweet on Facebook he maintained that the sentence is harsh considering the fact that she is a first time offender. He called on President Akufo-Addo to show her mercy by pardoning her.
It is unknown what will happen to her son after the sentencing. Many others feel Ghana has too many important issues to deal with than Poloo’s issue. Check some of the reactions after Sammy Gyamfi tweeted.
