Controversial comic actress, Rosemond Alade Brown known in Showbiz world as Akuapem Poloo has been granted a bail of Gh¢100,000 with four sureties after appearing before an Accra Circuit Court.

The title deed of the property, the Court said, should be deposited at the court’s Registry pending the outcome of the matter.
The case was then adjourned to November 23 2020.
Philip Kofi Bekoe, accused’s lawyer prayed the court to admit Rosemond to bail, explaining that she was a popular figure and had connection with people of substance who would stand as sureties when granted bail.
Chief Inspector Agartha Asantewaa, the case prosecutor narrated that the complainant, Mr Bright K. Appiah is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana.
On June 30 this year, Prosecution said Akuapem Poloo celebrated her son’s seventh birthday and she took her nude pictures together with her son who was also half naked and posted same on her Instagram page which went viral on social media.
The pictures attracted comments, adding that the behaviour of the accused person was likely to detract from the dignity of her seven year old son among others.
Prosecution said the complainant petitioned the Director-General of Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).
Rosemond Browm, prosecution said, was arrested and in her caution statement, admitted posting the nude picture with her son unintentionally.
A write up accompanying the picture read: “I am naked in front of you because this is how naked I was giving birth to you, so in case you find me lying somewhere don’t pass by but see me as your mom who brought you to life.”
Prosecution held that Rosemond deliberately posted the nude picture together with her son.
However, the actress apologised via her social media page that she did not intentionally engage in nudity with her son but was leaving artistic impression, hence the photo.
