Ghanaian actress, Akupem Poloo on Wednesday was sentenced to return to prison to begin her 90-day jail term.

This was decided after the High Court in Accra dismissed an appeal filed by her lawyers which sought to challenge the 90-day jail term handed to her by the Accra Circuit Court on April 16 this year.

Recall that an Accra High Court had granted Poloo, ¢80,000 bail with two sureties to be paid after thousands signed a petition for her release.

Poloo was sentenced to a three-month jail term for sharing a nude photo of herself and her son on social media.

She was charged with the publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence and undermining human dignity. She pleaded guilty.

In a ruling on Wednesday, the Criminal Division of the court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey upheld the Circuit court decision on the grounds that the Circuit court’s decision was not manifestly excessive.

“This court will not interfere, and the appeal is therefore dismissed,” Justice Aryee said.

The court ordered that in the absence of the convict, Akuapem Poloo’s child should be given to any competent person in the family to take care of.
