Star actress, Nana Ama McBrown, has added her voice to the campaign to free video vixen and actress, Akuapem Poloo.
Akuapem Poloo pleaded guilty after being slapped with three charges for going naked on social media.
Before her sentencing, she has been directed to undergo a pregnancy test to determine her status before the final decision is made on Friday, April 16, 2021.
However, many Ghanaian celebrities have moved to beg the judge sitting on the case to tamper justice with mercy.
McBrown is the latest personality to join the free Akuapem Poloo movement.
In her post on Instagram, McBrown released a photo of Akuapem Poloo and her son.
She said, "We can only PLEAD but remember our little one in prayer to God to LEAD."
It could be recalled that Akuapem Poloo shared a nude photo with her son to celebrate his birthday in June 2020. The actress explained the idea behind the nude photo at the time.
According to her, she gave birth to her son all naked, therefore, she decided to go naked to remind him of what she went through to get him.
Following the backlash, Akuapem Poloo quickly deleted the post from social media and apologised.
Meanwhile, Akuapem Poloo's lawyer Andy Vortia, has spoken after the conviction of the actress by an Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM on Thursday, Lawyer Vortia indicated that the guilty plea was the best route, looking at the evidence at hand.
According to him, the prosecutors handed over a pen drive containing video evidence of Akuapem Poloo going nude with her son, among others.
From the pen drive, the evidence against the actress was so overwhelming that they needed to plead and not fight.
The latter route, the lawyer explained, would have been deemed as a waste of the court's time and would have attracted a harsher punishment.
But with the guilty plea, Lawyer Vortia was hopeful that he could get the judge to show mercy and opt for the most lenient punishment.
He also debunked suggestions that the pregnancy test asked by the court meant Akuapem Poloo was going to be jailed.
