There has been a twist to the issue of the 28-year-old pregnant woman who got missing last week in Takoradi and was found in Axim on Tuesday.
Josephine Panyin Mensah was reported to be about nine months pregnant.
But the Western Regional Minister, Mr Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has disclosed that a preliminary observation by a doctor on her has shown that she was not pregnant.
Subsequently, the Regional Minister has asked the police to investigate the woman, husband and the mother.
The Regional Minister was speaking in a radio interview with Accra-based Angel FM,
I want to place on record that the information and report given to me by the security agencies indicates that the woman, “she 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, Mr Darko-Mensah who was speaking in the Twi language said.
He urged the public to disregard the issue of a pregnant woman being kidnapped and she being beaten and molested by her suspected kidnappers.
He said the dirt seen on her in the picture in circulation was because she was found sleeping on the bare ground.
He said he has asked the police to investigate her [Josephine] and the husband as the “next step of the process” for weirdly creating the impression and disorganise the public.
