Health workers at the West Gonja District Catholic Hospital, located in the West Gonja District of the Northern Region, are threatening abandon patients on admission.
This is in protest of the arrest and detention of their colleague who allegedly had his way with an European tourist.
The workers, who organized a press conference, have vowed to leave patients to their fate if their demands are not met within a stipulated time.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, the workers claimed that their colleague had been framed, and as such, he has to be immediately released.
Meanwhile, the 28 year-old suspect, Ernest Green was on Monday, April 9, 2018 remanded in prison custody to reappear on April 25, 2018.
The suspect was last week arrested by the police for allegedly having his way with a 24 year old Italian national who was on admission at the said health facility.
The incident, according to the complaint, happened on April 6, 2018 at about 4.00 am in a private ward at the hospital.
The victim added that she was rushed to the hospital at about 11:50 pm the previous day, as a result of a malaria attack.
She said the suspect approached her and suggested that that she moves into a private ward of the hospital.
He is reported to have taken advantage of her at dawn, as she returned from a washroom.
The suspect was arrested by the Damango police to assist in investigations, but the case was later transferred to the Regional Criminal Investigations Department in Tamale for further investigations.
