Obengfo Hospital owner charged with murder

Dr Obeng-Andoh picChief Executive Officer of Obenfo hospital, Dr Obeng-Andoh has been charged with murder following the mysterious death of Deputy CEO of National Entrepreneurship Innovative Programme (NEIP).

Stacy Offie Darko is reported to have passed away at the Obenfo Hospital in Accra on Monday, May 21, 2018.


However, the hospital authorities decided to deposit her body at the morgue four days after her death without informing her family members.

According to the family, the body of the deceased was deposited at the morgue within four hours after her death and was informed about the incident three days later.

This development infuriated the family and friends of the deceased leading to the arrest of Dr Obeng Andoh.

According to Joy News’ Matilda Wemegah, the Dr. Obeng Andoh came to the Accra Magistrate Court on Tuesday in the company of doctors from the Police Hospital.

She said the police told the court the suspect has been receiving medical treatment since last week Thursday after he was arrested.

Dr Obeng Andoh who is the first accused has been formally charged with murder contrary to section 46 of the criminal offences Act.

The second accused, Edward Amponsah, who is a cleaner at the hospital, has also been charged with impersonation contrary to section 134 of the criminal offences Act 29.

Both suspects were picked up last week after an official report was made by the mother of the deceased, Nana Akosua Anima (I).

According to Detective Chief Inspector, Simon Apiorsornu, the Stacy Offei Darko reported to the hospital on May 20, for liposuction and fat transfer surgery.

She reportedly died halfway through the process the next day. Dr Obeng Andoh, together with Mr Amponsah prepared her body for the morgue.

However, at the St. Gregory Hospital at Buduburam, the body was accepted into the morgue because the cleaner posed as the elder brother of the late Deputy CEO of NEIP.

The family of the deceased got wind of the situation on May 24 and reported to the police.

Dr Obeng fell ill last Friday after he was arrested and has been on admission at the hospital since.

He has been remanded into police custody after he was denied bail. Due to his visible ill health, he will be on admission to the hospital to assist in investigation till he re-appears on June 15.
