A man has been arrested at a clinic at Akwamu, a town near Nsawam in the Eastern Region for practicing as a doctor without a license.

He was arrested with two accomplices who were doing the jobs of a nurse and laboratory technician respectively.

They were arrested while they were busily administering health care to the unsuspecting public on March 7, 2018 at a clinic known as the Selomassa Health Centre.

The Crime Officer of the Nsawam District Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Mr Kofi Sarkodie Addo, in an interview with the media said they were given a tip-off about their services.

He said on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, a team of three officials from the the Dental and Medical Council went to the centre, with one of the them posing as a patient.
The quack doctor who was identified as Servor Kwasi has been operating the clinic for over a year.

ASP Sarkodie Addo said “It was also found that Servor once registered with the council as a physician assistant in May 2011 after he had been upgraded from a staff nurse to a medical assistant on May 1, 2007, having completed a course in Community Medicine and Health at the Rural Health Training School, Kintampo”.

The facility has since been closed down and the keys handed over to the police
