About 30,000 people have signed a petition to free Akuapem Poloo from jail following her conviction over a nude photo she took with her son about a year ago.
Ghanaian celebrities like Hammer, TiC, Joey B, and others are among the people pushing this campaign on social media.
“We are calling on the president of the 4th Republic Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to pardon this young single mother who can be blamed for perhaps poor judgement but in no shape or form deserves incarceration,” a portion of their petition states.

On Friday, April 16, 2021, Poloo was sentenced to a 90-day jail term after she pleaded guilty to charges of publishing obscene material with two counts of domestic violence over posting a nude photo of her son in 2020.
