The Kasoa police commander has arrested a lady who is identified as Gifty Monica. She is 27 years old and lives with her neighbor in the same compound at Kasoa American Down.

According to what we have gathered, Gifty Monica lives in the same compound with the carpenter whose wife lives at Winneba in the Central Region and visits her husband at Kasoa American Down on weekends.

Last Friday, October 20, 2023, the carpenter’s wife visited her husband as usual. She was with a child who was six months old. At the time she arrived, her husband was not at home, so they proceeded to the room to sleep as they waited for the baby’s father.

The following day which was Saturday, she had a stomach ache, so she asked an 11-year-old child to help her look after her baby whilst she attended a nature call. The young girl held the baby and the baby’s mother left for the toilet.

The moment the mother left, then suspect Gifty Monica arrived at the compound and called the baby’s mother and told her that, the young girl caring for her baby was unable to carry the baby so I would look after the baby, and she said okay and thanked her.

A few minutes later, she called the baby’s mother, she would like to buy some biscuits for the baby at the back of their home and she asked her to go ahead.

Since then, the 27-year-old has been nowhere to be found from Sunday, October 22, 2023. Any time she is called, she gives excuses like, I am at American Top, I am at Madina, Bowoase, or Winneba. On October 23, 2023, police from Kasoa were able to arrest her at Lapaz who is now in the custody of the police.

Gifty Monica has not been able to reveal where she took the baby to.
