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 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.
