Takoradi woman was not pregnant
The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, revealed that the found woman who was allegedly kidnapped was not pregnant.
According to him, preliminary investigation and examination by a medical doctor in charge of the kidnapped lady in the Western Region revealed she was not pregnant.
The regional minister stated that initial investigations by the BNI indicate the story of the kidnapping was fake.
My wife was pregnant
Meanwhile, the husband of the missing but found Takoradi pregnant woman, Michael Simons, insists his wife was pregnant.
According to him, there was no need for her to fake the pregnancy since they already have a child together.
He added that this was not desperation to have a child, so the minister should have done due diligence before running to the media to say his wife was not pregnant.
Josephine Tawiah Mensah went missing in the early house of September 16, 2021 in Takoradi while on her routine morning walk.
The disappearance of Josephine who was 9-months pregnant left a lot of people worried, as Takoradi and its environs had been in the news for various security threats with kidnapping topping the chart.
Her reappearance was welcomed with much joy and praise but was short-lived after the regional minister claimed her kidnap and pregnancy were all fake.
