Director-General, Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori has said that the 28-year-old Takoradi woman Josephine Panyin Mensah who was found a few of days after reportedly going missing will still be prosecuted in spite of her admission that she was not kidnapped and was also not pregnant, thus faking all those issues mentioned.
ACP Kwesi Ofori said she has put the entire nation, state institutions and thus the media through confusion hence, the Police will go ahead with the prosecution.
“She is in police custody at the moment . Nothing will stop the Police from going ahead to the court .
“Yesterday, she was warned and even she succumbed to the offence within the presence of her mother , some family relations and witness who happens to be neighbors.
“Absolutely, getting to we will be going to court, watching the instability caused in respect to the confusion for the family,the nation at large and thus the media front,” he said this when granting interview on Newsfile on Saturday September 25.
Earlier official complaints issued by Panyin Mensah’s husband at the police station on Friday, Citizenship Day confirmed that she was heavily pregnant and had been adjudicated.
But after being found at Tolanu, a suburb of Axim, exactly five days after the reported incident, she was without her assumed nine-month pregnancy.
This increased fears about the turpitude of her presumed kidnappers within the Western Region.
The Ghana Police Service has declared that Panyin Mensah has begged not to be taking to court for prosecution after confessing she was not pregnant and was as well not kidnapped.
The Ghana Police Service during a press statement issued on Friday September 24 said “The suspect, Josephine Panyin Mensah, 28, has confessed to the Police during further interrogation and stated that neither was she pregnant nor ever being kidnapped. the overall public are getting to be updated with further details.”
