New Abirem (E/R), July
31, GNA – The Medical Superintendent of the New Abirem Government Hospital, Dr
Alexander Osei Bonsu, has run into trouble with the law over alleged theft of
medical equipment valued at GH¢50,000.00, the property of the hospital.

The equipment was
reportedly being conveyed to a private facility, operated by the suspect, when
it was intercepted.

Police Superintendent
Emmanuel Amoah of the New Abirem District Command, confirmed his arrest to the
Ghana News Agency (GNA) and said he had been granted bail as they conducted
thorough investigations into the case.

Members of the
neighbourhood watch committee got wind that the medical items had been loaded
into a Nissan pick-up, belonging to the hospital at about 0400 hours, on
Sunday, and quickly acted to prevent these from being moved away.

Supt Amoah added that
the driver of the vehicle when questioned, claimed that he had been instructed
by the Medical Superintendent to transport the equipment to a private facility
he had been running in Kumasi.

A formal report was
subsequently made to the police and the driver was arrested together with the
suspected stolen equipment
