The group was also alleged to have attacked clients who had visited the hospital, before locking up the office of the hospital’s CEO.

The vigilante group accused the CEO, Dr. David Zaawumya Kolbila, of being incompetent and misused hospital funds.

They alleged that they were instrumental in his appointment as the CEO but has since ignored them.

The keys to Mr. Kolbila’s office are reportedly still in possession of the vigilante group, almost 24 hours after the incident.

However, the Police has revealed steps to re-open the administrative offices of the Tamale Hospital, with or without the keys.
