The suspect has been given four years of imprisonment in hard labour by the Suhum Circuit Court for engaging in illegal abortion says when it comes to performing abortions, he has “gifted hands” that deliver.
Mr Darko appeared to be a well-known abortion doctor in the Eastern Region, particularly within Suhum, where his facility, located at Mile 44 in Suhum, was the go-to for girls and women who needed to get rid of pregnancies for whatever reason.
Mr Darko’s abortions resulted in complications for many ladies who patronized his services. This led to investigations by the Ghana Health Service and the Ghana Police Service.
Mr Darko was arrested on January 9, 2021 while he was about to terminate the pregnancy of a lady who had been planted by the Police to expose him. Medical equipment and drugs were impounded by the police in his facility.
