Police didn’t force Takoradi woman to confess to fake pregnancy and kidnapping

The Acting Director-General of the Ghana Police Service Public Affairs Directorate, ACP Kwesi Ofori, says Josephine Panyin Mensah was not forced to confess to faking her kidnapping and pregnancy story.

Speaking on Citi TV/Citi FM’s The Big Issue, ACP indicated that “there was no molestation, no intimidation, no one coerced her to speak the truth. It was a voluntary statement to the Police.”

He said Josephine made these confessions in the presence of “an independent witness, her mother and husband.

Josephine has been in the news for weeks after it emerged that she was supposedly kidnapped during a dawn walk with a nine month-old pregnancy.

With the story turning out to be fake, she is currently in police custody, waiting for further actions from the Ghana Police Service.
