Please, don’t prosecute me – Takoradi woman begs after confessing she was never pregnant
The 28-year-old Takoradi woman Josephine Mensah found a few days after reportedly going missing has pleaded with the Police not to prosecute her after confessing she was not pregnant, 3news.com reports.
She admitted to not being pregnant with Police psychologists and Health workers at Effia Nkwanta Hospital in the Western Region on Friday, Police sources have told 3newscom.
She has since been “whisked” to the Takoradi Central Police Station, the sources added.
Earlier official complaints lodged by her husband at the police station on Friday, September 17 indicated that she was heavily pregnant and had been kidnapped.
But after being found at Tolanu, a suburb of Axim, exactly five days later, she was without her supposed nine-month pregnancy.
This heightened fears about the turpitude of her alleged kidnappers in the Western Region.
The controversy took another dramatic twist as the police administration disputed claims that GHȻ3,000 ransom was paid to the alleged kidnappers.
