Communications Director of major opposition National Democratic Congress ( NDC), Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi has prayed that President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo pardons jailed actress and video vixen, Akuapem Poloo.
Sammy Gyamfi was reacting to the actress’s sentencing earlier yesterday over a nude picture she took with her son and posted it on social media.
The actress had earlier on yesterday Friday16th April 2021 been jailed three months ( 90 days) by an Accra Circuit Court presided over by Her Honour Christine.
Akuapem Poloo was on Wednesday convicted by the Court by pleading to three charges against her on her own plea.
The actress was charged with the publication of nude pictures with her minor seven year old son on his birthday. She changed her not guilty plea to guilty before her conviction.
The Court had earlier deferred her sentencing to yesterday Friday 16th, April 2021 for her to undergo a pregnancy test to ensure she was not pregnant before her sentencing.
Before her sentencing was announced, the presiding Judge confirmed that she was not pregnancy after her pregnancy test as result came out negative.
The Communications Director reacting in a Facebook post, tagged sentence given to the actress as harsh.
He believes that a non- custodial sentence would have been appropriate as she was a first offender, pleaded guilty and showed remorse.
” The sentence given to @IamAkuapemPoloo 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 @NAkufoAddo remits her or pardons her”he Said.
