Akuapem Poloo kept her head bowed as she was led away by police

Ghanaian actress Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo, has been sentenced to three months in prison for posting a naked photo of herself on social media beside her son.

She broke down in tears after the judge read out the sentence in the court in the capital, Accra.

In the photo, posted last July to celebrate her son’s seventh birthday, she is crouching, facing the boy and holding his hands. He is wearing underpants. Her breasts are hidden by her long hair.

The image when viral and there was a huge backlash online.

The actress, who often posts photos of herself with her son on social media, apologised, but was invited for questioning by the police. BBC
