JUST IN: Sammy Gyamfi begs Akufo-Addo to Pardon Akuapem Poloo

General News

The National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (Gyamfi) has described the three-month jail term handed down to actress Akuapem Poloo as harsh and high-handed. 

In a tweet, Mr Gyamfi said the court should have been considerate since she is a first offender and pleaded guilty to the offence.

“The sentence given to @IamAkuapemPoloo is very harsh and high-handed. Given the fact that she is a first offender, pleaded guilty and showed remorse, non-custodial sentence would have been appropriate. Sad! I pray@NAkufoAddo remits her sentence or pardons her,” the NDC Communicator said.

Rosemond Brown, as the actress is originally named, was jailed by the Accra Circut court Friday for taking a nude photo with her seven-year-old son.

Akuapem Poloo she was charged with the publication of nude pictures with her seven-year-old son. She changed her not guilty plea to guilty before being convicted.

She was sentenced to 90 days on each count but the court said, the sentence must run concurrently.

This means she will only serve a 90-day jail term which is three months.
