Obiri Boahen to sue ‘oxygen doctor’

Private legal practitioner and Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has said he will sue the St. Gregory Hospital at Kasoa and the medical doctor who ordered that oxygen supply be cut to a nine-week-old baby on admission who died as a result of that action.

According to Nana Obiri Boahen, the circumstances that led to the death of the baby were unacceptable, hence his decision to take legal action against the doctor and the hospital.

He said on Accra-based Okay FM on Thursday, 12 April that: “The writ will be ready today and we will file it tomorrow, Friday.”

The oxygen was shut to little Prosper over his parents’ inability to raise GHS533 to pay his bills.

Little Prosper had been on admission at the hospital since 5 March due to respiratory problems until his death three weeks later.

The Ghana Health Service has launched an investigation into the matter.
