This is in spite of the claims by the police that she had confessed to faking the kidnapping and the pregnancy.

Meanwhile, the Lead counsel for the accused, Philip Fiifi Buckman, said the family is working on meeting the bail conditions.

“I attended to some other cases but from my checks from the police station, the family couldn’t meet the justification today [Monday, September 27, 2021] and I believe tomorrow [September 28, 2021] God willing we should be able to meet the conditions and take her home.”

Meanwhile, the case has been adjourned to be reconvened on October 14, 2021.
