Twitter user Nana Ama Agyemang Asante went on a dispute to explain why Akuapem Poloo’s case is just a cover-up to control women’s agency over their bodies.
As a known advocate for women rights, Nana Ama insists that the case is not an issue of morality or child protection. But the need by society to control a woman who is deemed uncontrollable.
According to her, this is a terrifying precedent for women’s safety and rights because any woman who has ever published nudes on social media can be prosecuted. She further explained that the verdict of the Akuapem Poloo’s case permits overzealous policemen to police women’s bodies in the public square.
She wrote, “I want folks in my replies who claim this case is not about control over Ghanaian women’s bodies to explain why NAM1, who duped thousands of Ghanaians, remains free at home. While Akuapem Poloo is in police custody for posting a picture with her son?”
Nana Ama Agyeman concluded by saying that it is in women interest to overturn the verdict against Akuapem Poloo.
