The group, said to be affiliated to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), was also alleged to have attacked clients who had visited the hospital.

According to a source, the incident occured in the evening yesterday.

The group accused some officials including the Deputy Director of Human Resource, Mr. Misbaw Mohammed, Dr. Abass and the CEO Prosper Akambong of mismanagement.

Leader of the group, Abdul Hack speaking to Accra-based Starr FM said, "The reason for their picketing is to go to the hospital and be there till the CEO steps down so we had understanding that if this is the reason they are going to be there, then let’s not go there with crowd.

"The CEO is the problem, and then going to the hospital would scare away most doctors and nurses and most patients won’t get attention and if he (CEO) would be the cause then we have to make the hospital be at peace, everything should be running smoothly; the hospital would now know that we lock the hospital for it to be running."

A group known as the Northern Young Patriots, earlier demanded the immediate dismissal of tDr. Prosper Akambong.

The group’s Chairman, Bashiru Baba at a news conference in Tamale, accused Dr. Akambong of superintending over corruption, nepotism and abuse of human rights of staff.
