The police said they are suspecting foul play in the alleged kidnapping of a pregnant woman, Josephine Simons, saying medical records indicate she was never pregnant in the first place.

In a statement on Thursday (23 September), the police say Simons is now a suspect in the case.

“The victim, now a suspect, during interrogation mentioned the European Hospital in Takoradi as the hospital for her antenatal reviews and assessment. Medical records at the facility suggest that the lady visited the hospital without pregnancy somewhere in October last year.”

“Investigations also suggest the suspect may have conspired with other persons over her possible planned disappearance,” the statement said.
