The Ghana Police Service has revealed that Ghanaian actress and social media influencer, Rosemond Brown, widely known as Akuapem Poloo is likely to be charged with indecent exposure after their investigation.

Social media on Tuesday, went rife after the said actress posted what appeared to be a nude photo of herself and her seven-year-old son as part of a birthday celebration for the boy.

Following the post, which went viral but was subsequently pulled down by the embattled actress, Child Right International petitioned the Ghana Police Service to investigate the matter and punish offender, claiming the post violates the fundamental human right of the boy.

According to the Police, Akuapem Poloo has been invited for questioning, but she is yet to attend to the invitation, although she was given up to 10am to report to the CID headquarters on Wednesday.

Speaking in an interview, the Director of the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit, Supt Mike Baah, said the police has commenced preliminary investigations into the issue, indicating that Rosemond Brown is likely to be charged with indecent exposure or child abuse.

“If indeed what we saw on social media is proved to be true, then we can charge her with certain offences. We can charge her with indecent exposure in accordance with the provisions of the Criminal and Other Offences Act (Act 29). We can also charge her for abusing the child psychologically which is also a crime under Act 732,” Supt. Mike Baah noted.

He added that “we have other offences we can look at depending on the evidence that we will gather through our investigations.”

Upon her failure to honor the invitation, Supt. Baah revealed that the police will use other avenues to get the actress for interrogation.

Meanwhile, Akuapem Poloo has since taken to her Instagram page and explained that her post was intended to teach children that when they find destitute and naked women, they should offer them help, an excuse Child Rights International has rubbished as bogus.
