Fake doctor nabbed at Kumasi south hospital


Reports from Kumasi indicate that a young man who paraded himself as a doctor has been nabbed by police officials.

He was reported to have been posing as a medical doctor and swindling unsuspecting patients at the Kumasi South Hospital (Ashanti Regional Hospital) at Atonsu Agogo.

The guy identified as Selassie was busted wearing a Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital branded overcoat with the name tag, “Dr Larbi” presenting himself as a medical practitioner who was on stand-in.

Investigations revealed that the 33-year-old man was neither a medical officer nor an employee of the facility but was only parading himself as such to defraud unsuspecting persons.

Upon his arrest, he openly admitted he was not a doctor or nurse but claimed he engaged in the act of deceit for survival.

He has since been handed over to the police.
