Actress, Tonto Dikeh has taken to social media to call on Nigerians to sign a petition to release jailed Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo.
Akuapem Poloo, was on Friday April 16th, sentenced to 90 days imprisonment for a nude photo she shared, posed with her son.
Akuapem Poloo and son
Last year, the Ghanaian actress shared a photo of herself, posed naked and squatting in front of her son, who was also half-naked, as a photo shoot to celebrate the boy’s birthday.
The photo did not sit well with Ghanaians and they dragged the actress over it. Some people even called for the law to deal with her as they deemed it inappropriate to involve a child.
The Child Right organization in Ghana, therefore, took on the issue and took it to court last year and she was handed the sentence after pleading guilty to her charges.
Many people, however, believe that, though the photo was inappropriate, the punishment does not fit the crime and have since started signing a petition to get the sentence reversed.
Tonto Dikeh, has also added her voice to the call to get Akuapem Poloo out of jail and has called on her fans and Nigerians to sign the petition and support the cause.
