According to him, his outfit had intelligence on the 14th of March 2021 that, Paulina Owusu from Sefwi-Boako under his jurisdiction had contracted four men to steal a baby for her and that she had rented an apartment for them.
He said he quickly organized his men to rush to the said place since he did not want anything to happen to the babies.

Abena Owusuaa,mother of the twins in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA)said the prime suspect (Paulina Owusu) came to her house pretending to sell meat to her only to arrange to steal her babies.
She disclosed that one of the babies had a challenge in one of the legs and was referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi for treatment, but due to financial difficulties she has not been able to do so.
