The judge who sat on the Akuapem Poloo case before pronouncing judgement bemoaned the high spate of nudity and insanity on the Ghanaian social media space.
According to Christina Cann, Akuapem Poloo’s sentencing needs to serve as a wake-up call to all and sundry who are using social media to the disadvantage of others.
She stressed the fact that people need to be very cautious about the things they share on social media because when they are brought before the court, there would be found wanting.
The judge, Christina Cann, said Akuapem Poloo’s decision to post reveal her nakedness to her son and share it on social media goes against the law and that was why she was hurled before the court and now had to face the consequence of her action.
Meanwhile, Akuapem Poloo has been sentenced to a 90-day jail term but his lawyer, Andrew Vortia has vowed to appeal against the court’s ruling because he finds it very harsh on his client.
Background to Akuapem Poloo’s Case
A bit of background to Akuapem Poloo nemesis is that in 2020, the social media personality shared a photo on Instagram where she was completely naked together with her seven-year-old son.
She captioned the photo: “I am naked in front of you because this is how naked I was giving birth to you, so in case you find me lying somewhere don’t pass by but see me as your mom who brought you to life.”
Many who came into contact with the photo believe Akuapem Poloo did the unthinkable. Fast forward, a child’s right activist, Bright Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana sued her for sharing such explicit material and putting her son in harm’s way.
He (Bright Appiah) petitioned the police after the photo went viral on social media, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).
Rosemond Brown after her arrest in 2020 admitted posting the nude picture with her son but insisted she did so unintentionally after she had done a video to apologize to Ghanaians and her fans.
