“The Police people are on the grounds and may have spoken to people, but at the moment, we haven’t issued a formal report to the Police. And I’m not in a position to confirm if she was pregnant or not until our report is given to the appropriate quarters," he said.
He also intimated that Josephine is in stable condition and responding to treatment, and assured that the facility will not be compromised in its work.
The development comes on the back of reports that the medical records have been shared with the Police.
The confirmation from the hospital's director makes it clear that there are many contradicting revelations to the development since Josephine was found on September 21, 2021.

The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, earlier revealed that the found woman who was allegedly kidnapped while pregnant was not.
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, in an interview with Angel FM, stated that initial investigations by the BNI indicate the story of the kidnapping was fake.
