Deputy Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection Freda Prempeh says socialite Akuapem Poloo’s act of posting a nude photo with her son amounts to criminality.
She said the Ministry was working on bringing the socialite to book for the photo.
The actress shared a photo of her, squatted unclad in front of her 7-year-old son on his birthday.
The photo has courted public outrage as many people regard it as an abuse to the innocent boy.
Madam Freda Prempeh says this is criminal and they will do all they can to get to the root of the issue.
“She can’t run away from the fact that is a nude picture and looks like some intent to do some sort of pornography and there are laws in this country that talks about pornography and protection of children. CID has also invited her and I think she will be held under the act of the criminal offenses act”.
After the post, Akuapem Poloo has been invited by The CID as Children’s Right Group expressed disdain about the indecent photo.
Akuapem Poloo has also reacted to the incident. According to her, she meant to carry out a message in an artistic form that Children must not shy away from covering their parents nakedness – no matter what it takes, they should defend and stand by their parents.
She also added that she still baths with her 7-year-old son; she baths him before she baths so both of them go the bathroom together.
She has, however, said sorry for her actions and any negative impact it has caused.
