Embattled cosmetic surgeon, Dr Obeng-Andoh alias Obengfo who has been charged with the murder of Deputy Director of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Plan (NEIP), Stacy Offei-Darko has been refused bail by the Accra High Court.
Ms Offei- Darko allegedly died while undergoing a procedure at the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre known to many as Obengfo Hospital at Weija in Accra
Dr Obeng-Andoh was charged with murder, while Edward Amponsah, a cleaner at the hospital, was charged with impersonation for allegedly sending the body of Ms Offei – Darko to another hospital posing as her brother.
The two accused persons, applied for bail at the High Court, arguing that they were innocent.
No bail for Obengfo
The court, presided over by Mr Justice Kofi Dorgu, denied Dr Obeng-Andoh bail explaining that the application for bail came too early.
According to him, the autopsy report on the death of Mrs Offei-Andoh was not ready and that Dr Obeng, when granted bail could interfere with investigations.
Mr Justice Dorgu, however, ruled that Dr Obeng-Andoh could reapply for bail when the autopsy report is released.
Cleaner granted bail
The cleaner, has however been granted bail by the court in the sum of GHC 20,000 with two guarantors.
The court further ordered the cleaner to continue to attend committal proceedings of the ongoing case at the District Court.
According to Mr Justice Dorgu, Amponsah was granted bail because he was not a threat to the ongoing investigations.
