Stacy’s Mum Demands Obengfo’s Head
Nana Akosua Animah, mother of the late 37-year-old Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (NEIP), Stacy Offei Darko, has called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of her daughter.
“I want Justice, I want this matter to be thoroughly investigated and the culprits be punished severely,” she told Chief Jerry Forson on Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM on Tuesday, 29 May.
The police arrested Dr Dominic Obeng-Andoh, Director of the Advanced BodySculpt Centre, Obengfo Hospital, in connection with the death of Stacy, at the health post.
On Monday, 28 May, Ms Offei Darko’s mother told the media in various interviews that her daughter died at the facility under mysterious circumstances and was put in the morgue without the knowledge nor consent of any family member.
The mother said she only got informed of her daughter’s death three days after her passing.
She said she felt suspicious about the turn of events and reported Dr Obeng-Andoh to the police.
Dr Obeng-Andoh is currently being held by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service at the Nima Police Station. Alleged accomplices of Dr Obeng-Andoh have also been arrested in connection with Ms Offei-Darko’s mysterious death.
In the meantime, the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital is performing a postmortem on Ms Offei Darko’s body to ascertain the cause of her death, adding that “even a chicken won’t be treated like she was”.
Dr Obeng-Andoh has had several brushes with the law in the past. In 2017, his facility was shut down by the Medical and Dental Council for operating without a licence.
In 2016, Dr Obeng-Andoh was arrested for operating illegally following numerous complaints received from his patients.
In 2013, the same council revoked Dr Obeng-Andoh’s licence for operating illegally.
