The distraught mother of actress Akuapem Poloo who has been sentenced to serve 90 days in prison has pleaded for pardon for her daughter. Aunty Lydia was uncontrollable and spoke amidst sobs during an interview with Kwasi Aboagye on Peace FM Entertainment Review.
She amongst other things lamented about how the issue has affected her family including her grandson who has refused to go to school due to the outcome of the case. She pleaded for clemency for her daughter for the sake of her grandson.
