Hospital staff arrested for allegedly stealing GH¢50,000 worth of medical equipment

Medical Superintendent of the New Abirem Government Hospital, Dr Alexander Osei Bonsu, has been arrested for allegedly stealing medical equipment valued at GH¢50,000 belonging to the Hospital.



The equipment was reportedly being conveyed to a private facility operated by the suspect when it was intercepted.

Police Superintendent Emmanuel Amoah of the New Abirem District Command, confirmed his arrest to the Ghana News Agency (GNA).

He has been granted bail as Police conducts thorough investigations into the case, Supt Amoah said.

Members of the neighbourhood watch committee got wind that the medical items had been loaded into a Nissan pick-up, belonging to the hospital at about 4:00am on Sunday, and quickly acted to prevent these from being moved away.

Supt. Amoah added that the driver of the vehicle when questioned, claimed that he had been instructed by the Medical Superintendent to transport the equipment to a private facility he had been running in Kumasi.

A formal report was subsequently made to the police and the driver was arrested together with the suspected stolen equipment.
