The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Police Service has charged the Chief Executive Officer of the Advanced BodySculpt Centre at the Obengfo Hospital, Dr. Dominic Obeng-Andoh, with murder.
Dr, Obeng-Andoh was apprehended by the police over the death of Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (NEIP), Stacy Offei Darko.
Stacy Offei Darko reportedly died at the Obengfo Hospital medical facility of Dr. Dominic Obeng-Andoh.
According to the mother of the deceased, Nana Akosua Anima, Dr. Obengfo concealed the remains of her daughter for about three days before sending it to the mortuary without the knowledge of the family.
Dr. Obeng Andoh is expected back in court on June 12.
The closure on Thursday [January 27] was the second in a legal action against the facility after the council revoked the license of Dr. Obeng-Andoh in 2013 for operating illegally.
This follows complaints by some patients that they were having complications after visiting the plastic surgery section of the hospital, that is, the Advance Body Sculpture Centre.
The Medical and Dental Council subsequently looked into the allegations and came out with the conclusion that the facility’s CEO Dr Dominic Obeng Andoh is not a certified surgeon and is, therefore, practising illegally.
But Dr Obeng Andoh insisted that he was trained in cosmetic surgery in Florida, the USA for two weeks and was awarded a certificate.
He said his hospital was locked down without a warrant.
But some four months down the lane, operations begun in earnest at the hospital.
