Fake Doctor Busted in Takoradi

DoctorA 27-year-old man, fake doctor, Daniel Appiah Kyere Dankwa has been busted by the Takoradi Central Police for diagnosing and administering medication to his patients.

Mr. Dankwa is reported to have used software in diagnosing patients and surf the internet for medication.

According to the Police, he also ordered monies from his patients immediately to purchase the drugs he found on the internet.

But his patients began raising eyebrows on his professionalism because all his prescriptions were given in single doses.

22 people have already been victims.

He appeared before the Sekondi Circuit court on the 16th of May and pleaded not guilty but he was however granted bail on a sum of GHC 100,000.

The Western Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, ASP Olivia Awurabena Adiku who spoke to Citi News said she was satisfied that at least, his patients did not report cases of complications from the diagnosis and prescription given them.

She advised the general public to patronize the hospitals in the municipality, both government and private.

“We have approved hospitals both government and private health facilities and they should patronize such places instead of buying drug from people they don’t know where they come from,” she stated.

According to her, “although the doctors will ask you to go to the laboratory before they know what is really wrong with you.”
