More confusion hit missing Pregnant Takoradi woman as Police and Family tell two different stories.


News of the return of the missing pregnant woman in the Western Region, specifically Takoradi has sparked lots of concerns and confusion about where she had been all this while and if indeed she was truly pregnant at the time of her going missing. Even more confusing is the release of a press statement by the Ghana Police Service this morning debunking claims that the missing woman was pregnant at the time under review. She has now changed from being a "Victim" to becoming a "Suspect" under investigation.

According to the Police, the woman at the centre of the brouhaha, Josephine Panyin Mensah was immediately sent to the Axim Government Hospital for medical attention when she was announced to have reappeared but the medical results proved that the woman was not pregnant at all. "The Police is heavily relying on medical experts who have examined her. Their findings are that Josephine Panyin Mensah was never pregnant within the period under review following thorough medical examination by the medical Doctors at the Axim Government Hospital" the statement read.

But "Joy News" Western Regional correspondent, Ina-thalia Quansah interviewed several other community members who insist the woman was about 9 months pregnant with several signs proving her pregnancy, like her swolen feet, protruding stomach and others before her disappearance. According to them, she operated a "mother care" shop which had since been under lock and key over the period of her going missing. The community members are also of the view that the Hospital administrators are not telling the entire truth. Some of the market women seemed aggrieved and agitated about the fact that the Police and Medical officers are denying any form of pregnancy by the woman.

Three suspects have since been arrested in connection with the case to assist the Police in investigations.
