A 56-year-old fake Medical Doctor and her 36-year-old daughter have been arrested by Central Regional Police command at Assin Adedeamtem in the Assin South District of the Central region.
Speaking to EIB Network’s Central Regional Correspondent Yaw Boagyan, the Regional Police deputy PRO Sgt. Evans Isaac Entie said on July 23, 2021, at about 9:30 am, a team from the Complaints and Investigative Unit of the Ghana Medical and Dental Council from Accra, with a team of police personnel from the Assin Adadientem, acting upon information led to the arrest of 56-year-old suspect Samuel Odartei, an alleged quack doctor who had been operating for over five years from his residence at Assin Adadientem.
The team upon arrival chanced on his daughter, a 36-year-old suspect Alberta Lanuekor in a pair of gloves busily dressing a patient’s wound, whilst other patients waited to be attended to.
The two were arrested and escorted to the police station with a variety of operating items including prescriptive and over-the-counter medicines.
An investigation by EIB Network’s Central Regional Correspondent Yaw Boagyan revealed that that the two fake Doctors were operating without a license.
According to information, several illegal abortions had been done at their premises which has led to deaths in some cases.
Both suspects are in police custody assisting with investigations.
