Private legal practitioner, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has called on the Police Administration to arrest Ghanaian female socialite and actress Efia Odo with immediate effect following her ‘indecent’ public behavior.
The actress has come under immense criticism over a black-slit gown she wore on Thursday, April 21, 2022, to the official album lunch of rapper Kwesi Arthur’s much-anticipated ‘Son of Jacob’ song.
With the dress, the 27 year old’s boobs with the nipples was seen glaring at the attendees in the all see-through outfit at the launch.
However, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, speaking to the Anopa Bofo morning show on Angel FM believes the Inspector General of Police (IGP), George Akuffo Dampare, must act swiftly and arrest the actress because she is acting as a bad example to the youth with her public indecency which is criminal.
According to him, the exposure of nudes is against the criminal offensive act, the cyber crime act and the public decency act of the 1992 Constitutions of the country.
To him, there is no difference between Efia Odo’s action and that of fellow actress Akuapem Polo, who showed her nudity to her son. Therefore, the same law which got Polo arrested must take effect.
“When women exposes themselves naked, its criminal offense, yes, its criminal offense especially when it is done internationally. If these things have gone to the notice of the cyber crime office and the IGP they will act on it”
“This have become a public matter which is all over the public trending and i think if the law enforcement agencies don’t want to do selective justice, then this girl [Efia Odo] should have right now been arrested” the Lawyer told Kofi Adoma Nwanwani.
He continued by sending a word of caution to the general public that he awaits anyone with the guts who will come out leading a campaign dubbed ‘free Efia Odo’, should she be arrested.
According to him that kind of protestation is an attitude he attributed to the high indiscipline in the Ghanaian society leading to many uncultured practices.
Lawyer Maurice Ampaw wondered how such “irresponsible” figure like Efia Odo would have a locust to sit on social media to criticize the leadership of a ruling government in the country, stressing that these are people “who should not speak in the country.”
Buttressing his point, he concluded that the actress in question does not have the morals to serve as a role model to the youth because “she’s a bad example.”
“What worries me most is she [Efia Odo] always wants to become a role model. Look at your irresponsible behavior, as a celebrity what you can give to the youth, the public, is your nude. It is a criminal offence and they should go after her’ Lawyer Maurice Ampaw added.
