The Ghanaian actress was imprisoned today to serve a 90-day jail term for posting a nude photo on social media with her 7-year-old son. Akuapem Poloo was convicted after she pleaded guilty to all charges.

"Get a case and see, this country when you don't get involved in a case, you'll think laws don't work. Get a case and see, that's where they will read articles, they will read clauses, they will read it in English and break it down in Twi," the film director said.

"I feel sorry for her ... I am hoping that the decision would be overturned, we can only be with her in prayers, let's learn our lessons from the Akuapem Poloo sentencing and leave the rest to God," Kofi Asamoah added.

According to the 'Away Bus' director, " it should tell us that social media they will be people who will be behind you but in your comment box, that is the only time they can support you".

"When you are in jail, none of these will ever show up, we can create hashtags and campaigns in your name but those who create these things won't be in the prison with you. So before you make any move on social media, please think," Kofas advised.

"Social media is a public platform so when you put something there you've put it there for public consumption and based on that ... you can go to jail" he added.

Akuapem Poloo faced charges of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity and engaging in domestic violence namely conduct that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
