Police intensify hunt for Fake Doctor who ‘chopped’ prostitutes and robbed patients

The police in the Western Region have intensified their efforts to apprehend an alleged fraudulent Medical Doctor who has been practicing at the Takoradi Government Hospital, commonly known as The European Hospital. This fake doctor, as per information obtained from the Facebook page of the well-known broadcast journalist Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson of Connect FM, is also accused of stealing from patients who were receiving treatment at the hospital.

The suspect, known only as Jude, is reported to have presented a falsified internship letter from the University of Ghana Medical School (UGMS) to the hospital administration, posing as a Junior Doctor seeking an internship.

It appears that the suspect was granted an internship at the hospital and was assisting senior Medical Doctors. However, after working at the facility for several days, he devised a scheme to steal from the hospitalized patients.

Sources suggest that he collected the mobile phones of all the patients who were admitted, claiming he was safeguarding them from potential theft.

“He collected their phones and told them thieves had been coming to the hospital to attack patients so the phones would be kept safe for them. He also convinced them to unlock the phones since someone might urgently call them,” our source indicated.

Whilst the unlocked phones were with the suspect, he started chatting with close contacts of the patients and demanded they send money for emergency care.

“He was posing as the patients whilst using their phones and told their contacts that they needed money for medical care. The people he contacted thought they were chatting with the original owners of the phone and some of them sent an undisclosed amount of money to him”, the sources added.

One of the patients at the hospital was a Nigerian woman domiciled in Takoradi and has been operating a chop bar business. With this information in mind, the suspect went for the services of a Nigerian prostitute at Vienna City in Takoradi and had sex with her; he later used an unsuspecting sex worker to collect money from her Nigerian contacts.

“I was in Vienna on Wednesday when the suspect walked towards me and asked how much I would charge for a night. I told him he would pay GHC 600 but he asked for a reduction and we all agreed on GHC 500. He then opted to go to my place which I obliged because I would take my money afterwards. We had a shower and did whatever we had to do. In the morning, he asked that I give him my mobile money registered number because someone would be sending money to him. He was holding four phones and calls started coming in from Nigeria, he asked me to speak to them in my language”, she indicated. The prostitute, Bella (not her real name) indicated when we visited her at her lodge.

The suspect whilst in Takoradi was being accommodated at the mission house of the Holy Hill Assemblies of God Church located at Mankessim White House.
