A quack doctor has been arrested by the Central Regional Police Command following a tip-off.

Suspect Samuel Odartei, 56, was rounded up at his residence at Assin Adadientem No. 2, where he has practised over the years.

The police was aided in the operation by a team from the Complaints and Investigative Unit of the Ghana Medical and Dental Council in Accra.

A police report says upon arrival, the joint team chanced upon the daughter of the quack doctor, Alberta Lanuekor, 30, in a pair of gloves busily dressing a patient’s wound while other patients waited to be attended to.

The team arrested her with a variety of operating items including prescriptive and over-the-counter medicines.

“Both suspects are in police custody assisting with investigation.”
