An alleged quack doctor, Samuel Odartei, 56 and his daughter, 30, Alberta Lunuekor who was also found operating as a paramedic at a facility being used as a clinic, have been arrested by the Assin Adadientem Police in the Central Region.
This was after a team of police detectives from Assin Adadientem and personnel from the Ghana Medical and Dental Council embarked on a operation to bring the suspects to book.
According to report sighted on Graphic Online, the Deputy Central Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Sergeant Isaac Evans Ettie, who confirmed the incident to the media said on June 23, 2021 at 9:30 a.m., the team stormed the residence of Odartei, which doubled as a health centre, at Assin Adadientem and made the arrest.
Years of practice
Odartei has over the years been practising as a medical professional from his residence at Assin Adadientem No. 2.
His patients reportedly come from the Assin Adadientem community and several other surrounding villages.
Sgt Ettie stated that the team chanced on Odartei’s daughter, Alberta Lunuekor, in a pair of gloves busily dressing a patient’s wound, while other patients waited to be attended to.
He added that the team also took video shots of the operations at the facility.
The team retrieved a variety of medical operating items as well as prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
Later the same day, Sgt Ettie said Odartei reported himself to the Assin Adadientem police and was arrested.
