According to residents of the area, it is unclear who the father of the baby is. The locals also opined that this is not the first time the mad woman has given birth in the area.

They noted that anytime she puts to bed her relatives normally come for the baby.

The madwoman who for four years has pitched camp in a bushy area off the main Takoradi-Effiakuma Road very close to the Takoradi Technical Institute realising that many people had gathered around her, moved further into the bush, this time round, with the baby strapped tightly on her back.
