Newly elected General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party [NPP], John Boadu has finally broken his silence on allegations leveled against him regarding his relationship with Ms Stacy Offei Darko, a Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Plan (NEIP), following her unfortunate demise.
According to the former National Organizer of the ruling party, Ms. Stacy Offei was just a friend who had asked him to drop her off at the Obengfo Hospital to meet the CEO because she didn’t want to drive to the place.
“She is my friend and on that Friday before the unexpected happened, I joined her to meet her friend who had returned from Germany. Initially, she asked me to drop her off at the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre for an appointment because she didn’t want to drive to the place,” he narrated.
Speaking in an interview on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ programme, Friday, John Boadu further explained that Ms Stacy Offei Darko later told him her appointment had been rescheduled to Monday, so he left for other assignments outside Accra.
“She later told me of changes in her appointment from Friday to Monday when I was ready to take her to the hospital, so I left them (Ms Stacy Offei Darko and her friend from Germany) and drove away for a meeting in the Brong Ahafo Region to meet the Regional Executives of my party and other party engagements,”he stated.
“I called her back but there was no answer to my calls until I missed a particular phone number’s call several times Wednesday morning around 1am, so I called back and it was her sister who broke the news of her demise at the said hospital to me,” he painfully told UTV.
According to Stacy Offei Darko’s mother, Nana Akosua Animah, her 37-year-old daughter fell ill and sought medical attention at the Obengfo Hospital but died on Monday after her admission.
She said she was informed about her daughter’s death three days later.
She also claims the daughter was not given proper treatment.
Meanwhile, owner and doctor in charge of the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre known as Obengfo Hospital has been charged with murder by an Accra Magistrate Court.
Dr Dominic Obeng Andoh has been remanded in custody for his role in the mysterious death of Stacy Offei Darko whom until her untimely death was the deputy CEO of National Entrepreneurship Innovative Programme (NEIP).
According to the family, the body of the deceased was deposited at the morgue within four hours after her death and was informed about the incident three days later.
This development infuriated the family and friends of the deceased leading to the arrest of Dr Obeng Andoh.
The Obengfo Hospital has since been temporarily closed.
