“The Medical Staff at the Takoradi Government Hospital have given statements to the police that they distance themselves from any kind of antenatal or any pregnancy check-up, as claimed by Josephine Mensah. What they said was that the last time she visited the hospital was October 2020 where she came with an ailment issue which the hospital did not disclose, but they went further to say that it had nothing to with pregnancy or antenatal care and management.”
