The executive director of Child Rights International (CRI), Bright Appiah, has said in a video that he demanded GHC200k from Akuapem Poloo to take her case from court.
While speaking in an interview with Ghanaian blogger Zionfelix, the CRI boss indicated that he requested Akuapem Poloo to cough up GHC200,000 to his outfit to be used to start an investment account for her son.
According to Bright Appiah, Akuapem Poloo's lawyers asked to discuss the matter with his client but upon return, said the actress could not even raise GHC10,000.
The CRI boss said his main concern in the whole case was the welfare of Poloo's son, Chief, so he wanted him to have a solid future.
He said he gave the actress the condition of investing the GHC200k for Chief and hand it over to him when he turns 18 years old.
However, Poloo was not able to come up with the cash and it left him no choice but to allow the case to continue in court.

Bright Appiah said if Poloo was able to fulfil his request, the case would have been withdrawn from court.
