Chief Executive of Advanced Body Sculpt Centre popularly known as Obengfo Hospital, Dr Andoh Obeng, says his prosecution was “maliciously” masterminded by some medical doctors and spearheaded by the Medical and Dental Council.
Speaking exclusively to TV3 two days after his acquittal, the medical practitioner suggested his arraignment and subsequent prosecution was needless, claiming it was purely an orchestration of the Registrar of the Council, Dr Eli Kwasi Atikpui.
“There was no need for them to go to court because the whole thing was orchestration; malicious orchestration. It shouldn’t have happened,” he told TV3’s Wendy Laryea in Accra Thursday.
Dr Andoh, popularly known as Dr Obengfo, claimed his accusers, including Dr Kwasi Atikpui, who were running around claiming that he had broken the law, eventually “ran away like chicken” when asked to come and prove with evidence.
The medical practitioner was arrested on December 28, 2016, after the Council alleged he had failed to renew his annual licence to practice and to operate the private health facility.
He was charged for being an unregistered practitioner and operating an unlicensed health facility but was on October 8 acquitted him after the court found the evidence adduced to be insufficient.
The court mentioned that the charges were lumped together instead of separating them, adding that they were also inconsistencies in the evidence given by the prosecution witnesses.
