Janet Korley, a middle-aged woman who traveled to seek greener pastures in Lebanon sometime in the mid-'90s has recounted how she met a Ghanaian man and travel partner who eventually became her baby daddy.

Speaking on SVTV Africa with DJ Nyaami, Madam Janet indicated that she was two months pregnant when they began their journey to Italy. They had to go by sea or road, but she chose the latter.

According to her, they were mostly kept in camps for months before planning their next journey.

She stated that she was already seven months gone when they decided to cross the Slovenia border from Hungary.

Prior to that, Madam Janet and her Ghanaian boyfriend along with other friends were arrested and camped for months in Hungary for lack of documents.

“Eventually we got to Italy by train but we could not find a place to stay and contact my baby daddy's friends. So we had to continue to Holland but we had no papers and was sent back to Milan.

When we got back to Milan, an officer helped us to a Catholic Church in Napoli where we stayed for a few days.

"We were told that there was a Ghanaian church nearby so we went there for shelter. We stayed there for two months,” she said.
