I Cannot Go Out At Night These Days Because Of Kidnapping In The Country – NDC Panelist Declares

The Takoradi alleged kidnapping has dominated the headlines in the past one week. What started as a simple case of a kidnap has suddenly turned into a drama that has confused many. Josephine Mensah was founded stranded and later upon examination discovered to be without pregnancy. According to the medical doctors who have examined her so far she is not lactating and nothing shows she has been pregnant for the past few months.

Later yesterday, news broke out that Josephine Mensah has admitted to never being pregnant. This has even complicated the whole issue. Whereas the family of Josephine Mensah claim that she was pregnant and that the police are intimidating her to admit that she was never pregnant, the police have emphasized that she was never pregnant.

Today, Saturday, September 25, 2021 on TV3’s The Keypoints, Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, a former Minister for Gender and Social Protection under the John Mahama government shared her thoughts on the whole brouhaha. She maintained that she is disappointed in the police so far. She maintained that with the increase in insecurities she is frightened going out.

“The Police could have managed this better and be more professional. The police are being reactive and are reacting to the public pressure instead of staying focused and being professional. You can see a disconnect between the regional security headed by the regional minister and the police. the aide to the regional minister talked about a ransom paid and the police have denied this.

We are worried about our safety and security. For the first time in my life I will not go out alone or drive after 10pm. I am not too sure about the security situation and whether am safe or not. This is the very first time in my life. I could drive at 3am, 2am or 12 midnights but now am being careful” Oye Bampoe explained.

It is interesting to see how all this will end. Many claim with the confession of the woman, the case will come to an end, while others say that this is just the end of the beginning. Well, for now reports say Josephine is pleading not to be prosecuted.
