According to the press statement by the Medical and Dental Council and the Economic and Organized Crime Office, three nurses were arrested together with one doctor Hope Mensah Quashie who works with the 37 Military Hospital. The supposed nurses were believed to be working in the doctor’s private clinic namely, Susan Clinic.
