The Wiawso Police Commander, DSP Christopher Darkey, who confirmed the incident on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Wednesday, said on 14th March, the police received intelligence that the woman, who happens to be their leader, asked the men to go to the town and steal the twins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said the woman, prior to the act, went to the area where the mother and her twins were to sell fish though they had not seen her there before.

However, some people, who saw the gestures of the woman as suspicious, raised an alarm because she was always seen in that particular house though the victim refused to buy from her.

He said luck eluded the suspects who had come to the house to steal the babies.
