In a fresh update to the Takoradi pregnant woman’s case, information www.Ghbase.com is picking indicates that the woman at the centre of the Takoradi kidnapping incident Josephine Panyin Mensah has been arrested together with her husband Simon Michael, and her mother Agnes Essel.
According to 3news.com, the husband and his mother-in-law are suspected to have aided Josephine in faking her kidnap.
The suspects were arrested to aid the investigation as the police have tagged them as accomplices. The news of their arrest was reportedly confirmed by Justice Acquah, an aide to the Western Regional Minister Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah.
“Because it was a syndicate. It was well planned. One person cannot stage a kidnapping. He had accomplices who helped in ensuring that they carry out their ideas successfully,” Acquah was quoted as saying.
In a previous report shared by www.Ghbase.com, we said another layer of twist has just been added to the trending Takoradi pregnant woman’s case and it’s murkier than we had envisaged.
The lady, Josephine Panyin Mensah who has now turned from the ‘prey to predator’, is presently being accused of faking the kidnapping story.
Her family, spearheaded by her husband has solidly stood by her and in this new development, the family could be seen in a video invoking curses on the Police, the Regional Security Council and the Regional Minister for the manner they have handled the issue.
According to the Police, medical experts who examined the woman have indicated that she has never been pregnant.
Josephine’s husband had earlier spoken to Connect FM where he vehemently opposed the position of the minister by insisting that his wife was pregnant and that records are at the Takoradi Hospital which shows that his wife has been pregnant for nine months.
He was moved to tears by the words of the regional Minister, claiming the National Security should have made its cross-checks before coming out with that piece of information.
And despite a new update shared by www.Ghbase.com showing that Josephine was indeed pregnant days before she was kidnapped, the police have still dismissed her story, insisting she was never pregnant.
