Following the 90-days sentence of Ghanaian actress and social media influencer, Akuapem Poloo real name Rosemond Alade Brown, many Ghanaians have joined the #FreeAkuapemPoloo campaign on Twitter for a pardon or release of Akuapem Poloo.
Sammy Gyamfi, a Ghanaian lawyer and politician who is the current National Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have joined the train as he describes Akuapem Poloo’s sentence by the Judge of the Accra Circuit Court as harsh and high-handed.
In a tweet sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh, Sammy Gyamfi said the court should have been considerate since she is a first offender and pleaded guilty to the offense.
“The sentence given to Akuapem Poloo is very harsh and high-handed. Given the fact that she is a first offender, pleaded guilty, and showed remorse, a non-custodial sentence would have been appropriate.
Sad! I pray President Nana Akufo-Addo remits her sentence or pardons her,” the NDC Communicator said.
Akuapem Poloo, was sentenced 90 days each to all three counts of;
– publication of obscene materials
– engaging in domestic violence namely a conduct that in any way undermined another person’s privacy or integrity.
– engaging in domestic violence namely conduct that in any way detracted or was likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
