Report is picking indicates that the woman at the centre of the Takoradi kidnapping incident Josephine Panyin Mensah, has tested negative three times consecutively after another pregnancy test was conducted on her.

This was disclosed by The Ghana Police Service. They revealed that all three tests at the Axim Government Hospital, the Takoradi Hospital and the Effia Nkwanta Government Hospital to ascertain whether Josephine Panyin Mensah was indeed pregnant at the time she was reported missing turned out negative.

The missing but found self-acclaimed pregnant Takoradi woman was transferred from the Axim Government Hospital to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in the Western Region capital.

Josephine Panyin Mensah was transferred under strict police escort on Thursday, September 23. Her kidnapping and pregnancy, according to the police and western regional minister, is suspected to be staged, hence her arrest and police escort.

In a previous report shared by, we said another layer of twist has just been added to the trending Takoradi pregnant woman’s case and it’s murkier than we had envisaged.

The lady, Josephine Panyin Mensah who has now turned from the ‘prey to predator’, is presently being accused of faking the kidnapping story.

Her family, spearheaded by her husband has solidly stood by her and in this new development, the family could be seen in a video invoking curses on the Police, the Regional Security Council and the Regional Minister for the manner they have handled the issue.

According to the Police, medical experts who examined the woman have indicated that she has never been pregnant.

Josephine’s husband had earlier spoken to Connect FM where he vehemently opposed the position of the minister by insisting that his wife was pregnant and that records are at the Takoradi Hospital which shows that his wife has been pregnant for nine months.

He was moved to tears by the words of the regional Minister, claiming the National Security should have made its cross-checks before coming out with that piece of information.

And despite a new update shared by showing that Josephine was indeed pregnant days before she was kidnapped, the police have still dismissed her story, insisting she was never pregnant.
