About a week ago, a nine-month pregnant woman was reported missing in Takoradi after she failed to return from an early morning walk.
She was, however, found on Tuesday, September 22, 2021, but in a much more bizarre condition which has caused a lot of questions to be asked.
According to reports, Josephine, at the time of her disappearance had a fully grown baby bump but was found without a baby or the bump.
She is said to have told her family in a written note that she was forced to deliver on the fateful day of her alleged kidnapping.
However, even before she could come out of her trauma, Western Regional Minister, Darko-Mensah’s has claimed she wasn’t pregnant.
The minister has cited preliminary examination by medical officers at the Acxim government hospital where Josephine is undergoing treatment as a source of his comments.
