Michael Simon, husband of the missing Takoradi woman who was found on Tuesday has insisted that his wife was nine months pregnant before she went missing.
This contradicts the revelations by the Western Regional Minister, Mr Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah after she was found on Tuesday at Azim. The minister in an interview with Angel FM alleged that the 28 year old Josephine was not pregnant as earlier reported in the media. There was also no sign of assault by the suspected kidnappers. The Minister has therefore directed the police to investigate the couple.
He said: "I want to place on record that the information and report given to me by the security agencies indicates that the woman is not pregnant. The doctor who has been attending to her in Axim since she was found on Tuesday has said she was not pregnant. Nobody has beaten her".
But in an interview with Citi FM today, Josephine's husband, Michael Simon insists his wife was nine months pregnant and near delivery. Michael told Bernard Avle that they were both living together but he advised the wife to move in with her mother as she draws closer to delivery. Michael works at night so he wanted to avoid a situation where the wife could be found wanting in the middle of the night.
On Thursday, Josephine went missing during her routine daily exercise as advised by her doctor. On the same day, she called the mother amidst tears to inform her about her predicament.
She was however found at Azim on Tuesday after series of unsuccessful search. Michael said he has not allowed to speak with the wife since she was found. Nonetheless, Josephine is currently receiving medical care at a hospital facility in Azim.
