Obengfo pleads not guilty; granted GHC50,000 bail

The CEO of Advance Body Sculpt Centre Dr Dominic Obeng Andoh has pleaded not guilty to charges of operating an unlicensed medical facility and practising medicine without a license.

He was slapped with these charges last week after he was remanded by the Accra Central District Court for the alleged murder of a Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Plan (NEIP).

Stacy Offei Darko died last month after admitting herself to the Obengfo Hospital after complaining of a headache.

Her death sparked outrage leading to the arrest of Dominic Obeng Andoh and some of his staff by the police.

Joy News’ Joseph Ackah-Blay was in court Friday where reports circulated that Obeng Andoh did not show up at Circuit Court for his plea last month. Today, he arrived with a physician.

His lawyers explained his earlier absence was due to ill health.

When asked to take a plea, he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The court granted him bail to the tune GHC50,000 with two sureties.

A visibly unwell Obeng-Addo had to be aided by three persons to walk as he made his way out of the courtroom.

The case has been adjourned to July 6, 2018.
