A video has emerged of actress Akuapem Poloo being whisked away to begin her 90-day prison sentence for posting a nude photo.
The video sees Poloo in a hoodie with her lawyer, police officers, and the media in tow.
According to the TV3 reporter who was at the court, Poloo, who is also known as Rosemond Brown, broke down upon hearing the sentence and went on her knees to beg the judge but her pleas for mercy were not heard.
The judge reportedly complained about the aggravation of the matter when Akuapem Poloo earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against her.
Akuapem Poloo: Ghanaians share diverse opinions over actress's 90-day prison sentence for posting nude photo
She was convicted for going nude before her son on his birthday and sharing the photos on social media.
When she shared those photos, many people criticised her and warned her to take down those photos. However, she hit back hard at her critics, saying that it is her page, her body, and so she can post whatever she wants.
Her 90-day sentence means that the many calls by her colleague entertainers to have her released fell on the deaf ears of the judge.
The likes of Sarkodie, APlus, Efya, Bridget Otoo, Kwaw Kese, Nana Ama McBrown, others, all started a social media campaign for the judge's kind attention.
The saddest of all is the cries of Rosemond Brown's mother who begged the judge to have mercy and forgive her daughter.
In a related development, Ghanaian artist Reggie Rockstone has taken a swipe at GHOne TV's Serwaa Amihere for speaking against those pleading for actress Rosemond Alade Brown.
In what appeared like a new beef on social media, the two celebrities were seen arguing on divergent lines on the matter that is currently trending online.
Serwaa Amihere expressed her confusion over why some people were still pleading for Akuapem Poloo after she had pleaded guilty to the charges brought against her.
The GHOne TV star's post on Twitter read: “A person is convicted on her OWN PLEA, this means that the person accepts that he or she is wrong.
The natural consequence of pleading guilty on your own volition means that you are ready to be punished. How are we asking for this person to be freed….”
The veteran musician quizzed if Serwaa had a child and explained to her that human beings were liable to make mistakes and had to be forgiven when they realized their shortcoming.
Reggie’s tweet read: “WE ASK COS WE ARE HUMAN AND ALL BLEED RED AND FEEL FOR THIS PERSONS PLIGHT IS WHY IT IS OK TO ASK AND MORE SO ABOUT HER SON! DO YOU HAVE A CHILD? #empathy#weslip#thekid#empathy#jesuswould"
