Actress Akuapem Poloo has been sentenced to a three-month jail term for posting a nude photo with her son in June 2020.
Poloo was sentenced after pleading guilty to the charge which included the publication of obscene material and domestic violence.
Following the court's judgement, the actress has been whisked away to begin her jail term
A video has popped up showing Akuapem Poloo was taken away from the court premises in the company of a number of police officers and other personnel.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the actress was dressed in a grey-coloured hoodie. Right after stepping out of the courtroom, she was ushered into a taxi and driven off.
Poloo tried everything to avoid being captured by the media on camera while the escorting security personnel helped to shield her.
See the video below:
Prior to the sentencing, Poloo's lawyer, Anthony Vortia, had explained the circumstances which led to Poloo pleading guilty.
According to him, the evidence against the actress was overwhelming and it was only wise to plead so and get a lenient judgement.
Earlier, comedian DKB had visited Akuapem Poloo in the police cells.
In a video after the visit, DKB has described the actress' current condition. The comedian also pleaded with the judge in the case to be merciful.
Meanwhile, Hiplife legend Reggie Rockstone has jabbed TV presenter Joyce Serwaa Amihere on Twitter over Akuapem Poloo's court case.
Serwaa Amihere had suggested that those pleading on Akuapem Poloo's behalf were 'wasting their breath,'
Reggie Rockstone however shared a different view on the whole.
