The wisdom behind the saying when a man loves a woman, he can despise his own family seems to have been broken by the current trending incidence involving Josephine Panyin Mensah Simons in the Takoradi kidnapped pregnant woman.
The Takoradi woman at the centre of the controversial pregnancy and kidnapping case Josephine Panyin Mensah Simons has made rather fatal confessions to a team of medical and investigation officers at the Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital saying she hatched the plot with her mother.
First Ghana News gathered that apart from confessing that she was not pregnant, the victim has further revealed that she wanted her husband to treat her good, that is the reason she faked the pregnancy and her kidnapping.
Josephine Panyin Mensah is on record to have told the investigating team she got pregnant for four months but lost the pregnancy in the process.
In a casual conversation with the investigating team, she said she could not find it easy to inform the husband (Michael) that the pregnancy had been lost, unknowingly to her husband.
Bu then, to continue the reality of the pregnancy, instead of telling the truth to her husband, she bought a silicone belly to demonstrate that the pregnancy was intact.
She added that her mother was aware of the plan every step of the way. She told the team that all this while she had given her husband, the people around her and her neighbours the false impression that she was still pregnant.
Josephine went on to further confess that she was afraid to lose her marriage because her husband gave her extra treatment and attention during the four months of her real pregnancy.
When asked by the investigating team whether she never had sex during and after wearing the silicone belly, her response was that she covered her fake pregnancy with a cloth during the said period.
It was after nine months of her fake pregnancy when pressure started mounting on her about when she would deliver that she faked the kidnapping.
She is allegedly reported to have gone into hiding at Agona Nkwanta but did not know her fake kidnapping could receive such attention.
The Takoradi divisional Police command has arrested and detained her for the conduct
She was discharged from the Effia-Nkwanta hospital Friday 24th September 2021 afternoon after she confessed to a team of medical and investigating officers that she lied about her kidnapping and pregnancy.
She and her mother are currently under police interrogation. When a woman loves a man, it can sometimes result in unfortunate incidences that can be morally fatal...a deliberate act of absolute foolishness.
