All three tests conducted at the Axim Government Hospital, Takoradi Hospital, and Effia Nkwanta Government Hospital to determine whether Josephine Panyin Mensah was truly pregnant at the time she was reported missing turned back negative, according to the Ghana Police Service.
The self-proclaimed pregnant Takoradi woman was moved from the Axim Government Hospital to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in the Western Region capital after being discovered.
On Thursday, September 23, Josephine Panyin Mensah was relocated under strict police escort.
She has been admitted to the Axim Government Hospital since Tuesday, September 21, when she was discovered in the yard of the Tolanu Jehovah Witnesses’ congregation.
She was discovered without her baby, raising concerns about the horrifying trauma she had at the hands of her suspected kidnappers.
However, Western Region Minister Kwabena Otchere Darko Mensah opened Pandora’s box by claiming that Josephine Panyin Mensah has never been pregnant on Wednesday, September 22.
The woman who went missing but was found in Takoradi was not pregnant, according to the Regional Minister.
According to early investigations by the National Security, he informed Kumasi-based Kessben FM that the pregnancy had been a hoax all along.
The relatives of the 28-year-old woman, who was deemed a suspect by the police, and inhabitants of Columbia, where she lives, fiercely contested this.
Some people even cursed the regional minister for spreading such “lies” about their next-door neighbor.
