Poloo Jailed: Actress awaits Covid-19 test before beginning 90-day jail term

The COVID-19 test results for troubled actress and social media sensation, Rosemond Alade Brown, known popularly as Akuapem Poloo, will be made available later today, Monday, April 19, 2021, before she begins her 90-day jail term.

The outcome of the test will determine whether she would commence her jail term immediately or be postponed to seek medical attention.

If it comes out negative, Akuapem Poloo would be sent to the Ankaful Prison in the Central Region.

The counsel for the controversial actress, Mr. Andrew Vortia told the media.

Akuapem Poloo was tested for COVID-19 on Friday after she was sentenced to 90 days imprisonment by the Accra Circuit Court presided over by Mrs. Christiana Cann.

Reading the verdict, Mrs. Cann gave the Ghanaian actress a minimum sentence for pleading guilty to all the charges leveled against her.

She expressed her dissatisfaction at the increasing rate nudity has dominated the Ghanaian social media space robing the country of its customs and values.

The presiding judge indicated that the action has become necessary to send a stern warning to people who often share nude pictures on various social media platforms.

Madam Christiana Cann added that the actress is being punished to serve as a disincentive to others.

In commemoration of her son’s birthday on June 30, 2020, Akuapem Poloo shared nude pictures of the pair together on her Instagram page.

The pictures were greeted with harsh criticisms with many accusing her of undermining the dignity of her seven-year-old son, among other things.

Mr. Bright K. Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana, petitioned the Director-General of CID, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).

Rosemond, the prosecution said, was arrested, and in her caution statement, admitted posting the nude picture with her son but said she did so unintentionally.

The prosecution held that Rosemond deliberately posted the pictures on social media.

She was convicted by the Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday after she pleaded guilty in court.

The court subsequently ordered her to undergo a pregnancy test and deferred her sentencing to Friday, April 16, 2021.
