Akuapem Poloo has expressed remorse for posting a nude picture to mark her son’s seventh birthday last year. The action has landed her in bosom of the law, which enforced a 90-day jail term on her.
But her lawyer filed an appeal against the ruling and she was granted bail. She told journalists in Accra on Saturday, April 24 that she could not even eat while in custody, emaciating in the process. The single mother was found guilty by a circuit court on all three charges but was sentenced to serve each of the 90- days term concurrently. Her lawyer, Andrew Vortia, however, proceeded to the High Court to appeal the judgement.
He secured a bail pending a hearing on the appeal and she has been granted bail pending the hearing. She has since thanked the many personalities both home and abroad who support her during the trial. She also advised celebrities – both current and upcoming ones – who are fond of posting nude pictures to put a stop to it.
