A male individual, aged 26, has been apprehended on charges of impersonating a medical professional at Kumasi’s Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
William Cyril Cohen, observed loitering near the hospital, is accused of masquerading as a medical doctor to admit patients and dispense medication.
“On Monday, September 4, 2023, he found himself in police custody as he was tending to a patient admitted to the emergency ward.”
“When confronted by a senior medical officer, the suspect purportedly exhibited signs of nervousness and made an unsuccessful attempt to flee, ultimately being caught by the hospital security personnel.”
In a video circulating on social media, the suspect is seen wearing a ward uniform while being hauled by the hospital security who later handed him over to the police.
“The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital is collaborating with law enforcement to probe the issue…”
