TTH Attack: Police release arrested Kandahar Boys

The police have released four of the Kandahar Boys who were arrested in connection with the chaos at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.



The police, according to Starr News’ Northern regional correspondent Eliasu Tanko, conducted screening Thursday morning upon which the suspects were released.

Tanko said hospital officials failed to connect any of the suspects to the crime where the CEO of the hospital Dr David Zaawumya Kolbila was locked out.

The spokesperson of the notorious vigilante group Kandahar Boys – which is linked to the ruling NPP – Mohammed Samsodeen told Francis Abban on Morning Starr they welcome the development after accusing the police of arresting “innocent” persons.

Meanwhile, doctors, nurses and Midwives at the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) have laid down their tools following the invasion of the facility by a vigilante group.

Dr Kolbila has since been reinstated by the Northern Regional Security Council led by the Minister Salifu Saeed with a promise to beef up security at the hospital to prevent the perennial disturbances instigated by party foot soldiers.

Announcing the strike action Tuesday, the Nurses and Midwives said in a statement that they “no longer feel safe” working at the facility despite the assurance from the Regional Minister.

“Many nurses, midwives and other staff have faced brutalities over the years in the hospital at the hands of these lawless groups.

“As nurses and midwives of the hospital, we do no longer feel safe working in the hospital in view of what happened on 13/08/18. If the C.E.O., who is the landlord of the hospital, could be manhandled in this manner, then we must take serious cover before these lawless persons turn on us,” said the statement.

They are thus “withdrawing their services in TTH with immediate effect until all the following conditions are met:

“An immediate establishment of a police post to provide security for all staff and patients.

“The perpetrators of this lawlessness must render an unqualified apology to the C.E.O., all staff of TTH and patients.

“The perpetrators of this heinous crime must be immediately arrested and arranged before a law court to face the full rigours of the laws.”
