N*de Pic: Actress Akuapem sent back to jail as court dismisses her appeal .

An High Court sitting in Accra, Ghana, has dismissed the appeal filed by Ghanaian actress, Akuapem Poloo, challenging her 90 days custodial sentence.


On April 16, 2021, the actress was arrested, arraigned and sentenced to 90 days imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court, over the publication of “obscene material and domestic vi*lence”, after she made a post on IG where she went n*ked while posing with her seven-year-old son.

Though she served a period into her term, her lawyers appealed the judgement considering it too harsh. She was subsequently granted a ¢80,000 bail, pending the determination of the appeal.

According to MyJoyFM, in a ruling on Wednesday morning, December 1, 2021, the Criminal Division of the court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey upheld the Circuit court decision on grounds that the Circuit court’s decision was not manifestly excessive.

The court also ordered that her son should be given to any competent person in the family to take care of him, while his mother serves her sentence at the Nsawam Prison.
