A senior laboratory assistant at the Abura Dunkwa District Hospital has been arrested by the police for allegedly trading the blood of pregnant women to money ritualists [Sakawa boys].
The lab technician – identified as Stephen Enyan – was arrested by the police in the district after it emerged that he was in the business of selling the blood of pregnant women to ‘Sakawa' boys.
According to reports, pregnant women who visit the hospital for antenatal checks normally lost their lives or lost their babies.
The weird happenings led to numerous complaints being lodged to the hierarchy of the hospital and investigations were subsequently launched.
The Abura Dunkwa District Police were duly alerted about it, leading to further probing into the matter.
It was later revealed that Stephen Enyan was trading the blood of pregnant women who visited the hospital to ritualists after one policeman posed as one of his customers.
In a WhatsApp conversation, the policeman agreed to pay GH¢10,000 for the blood of a pregnant woman and offered GH¢250 as part payment.
The lab technician was later arrested upon going for his balance.
Stephen Enyan is believed to have sold the blood for amounts ranging from GH¢5,000 to GH¢10,000.
The suspect is currently in police custody and will be arraigned before court.
