The Acting Director-General of the Ghana Police Service Public Affairs Directorate, ACP Kwesi Ofori, says Josephine Panyin Mensah faked her pregnancy and kidnapping story to please her husband.
Speaking on Citi TV/Citi FM’s The Big Issue, ACP Ofori revealed the woman’s decision to fake the pregnancy and kidnapping was purely based on issues relating to her marriage.
“From her account, she said she did it alone just to satisfy her husband. It was a pure family issue that she wanted to portray that she was pregnant. She did all that for the admiration of her 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.
