The Chief Executive Officer of the Tamale Teaching hospital in the Northern region Dr David Zaawumya Kolbila has allegedly been assaulted by members of an NPP affiliated vigilante group Kandahar Boys after they stormed the hospital.
The incident occurred Monday morning, Starr News’ Northern regional correspondent Eliasu Tanko reported.
The CEO’s office has been locked and the key taken away by the irate group which accuses him of incompetence.
The Police have arrived on the scene.
Meanwhile, a member of the Kandahar boys, Razak, who spoke to Starr News said they took the action because residents of Tamale are displeased with the management style of Dr. Kolbila hence their actions.
” We have locked up the place and the keys are with us. We took the action because we are concerned residents of Tamale and the people are not happy with him,” he told news anchor Kwaku Obeng-Adjei.
This is not the first time the group is attacking a health institution in the region. In may this year, The Northern Regional Director of Ghana Health Service, Dr. Samuel Quarshie fled from his office to an unknown destination for over a month now, after the group accused him of unnecessary meddling in the affairs of other staff.
