For some, any means is good to make money … This is the case of this Ghanaian laboratory. A senior laboratory assistant at the Abura Dunkwa District Hospital in Ghana, was arrested by the police for marketing the blood of pregnant women to ritualists [Sakawa men] for money.
The laboratory technician, named Stephen Enyan, was arrested by the police in the district after it was revealed that he was involved in an illegal blood sale of pregnant women to the ‘Sakawa’. According to several reliable sources, pregnant women who visit the hospital to pass the prenatal control have been victims of this dangerous laboratory practice. Other sources, even claim that this had caused the death of some women or their babies.
These strange revelations were corroborated by numerous complaints filed at the level of the hospital hierarchy. Immediately, investigations were launched. The police in the district of Abura Dunkwa were duly alerted on this subject, which made it possible to investigate further.
Despite being informed of investigations, Stephen Enyan, did not stop selling the blood of pregnant women who visited the hospital, to ritualists. But among them was a policeman who pretended to be one of his clients.
In a conversation on WhatsApp, the police officer agreed to pay 100,000 GH ¢ for the blood of a pregnant woman, and promised to pay 250 GH ¢ as advance of the amount.
One method that largely contributed to the arrest of the laboratory technician. He was arrested when he passed the rest of his money. Stephen Enyan reportedly sold blood for prices ranging from 5,000 GH ¢ to 10,000 GH ¢.
The suspect is currently in custody and will be brought before the court.
