How was Josephine Simons found?
Josephine Panyin Simons was found on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at Axim in the Nzema East District by a carpenter close to a nearby bush.
Giving an account of how she was found, the carpenter said:
"She was lying on the floor. I approached her and asked a few questions, but there was no response. She was only using her hand to make gestures but could not speak.
I realized she was not a mentally challenged person."
According to the carpenter, Josephine then gave him a signal to bring a paper and a pen for her and she was able to identify herself, where she is from, as well as the phone number of her pastor and family.
The traumatized lady was also able to give the man an indication that she was pregnant but got kidnapped and the baby has passed away.
Lady escaped kidnapping
She indicated that two men who were dressed as mechanic, drove close to her, and tried to stop her by shouting that her oil was leaking.
However, Naa said the men seemed a bit forceful in their quest to get her to stop, which gave her the first suspicion that they had an ulterior motive.
