A 25-year-old unemployed man was yesterday
arrested for allegedly posing as a medical
student doing his housemanship at the Korle
Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

The fake doctor, identified as Ibrahim
Nurudeen, was arrested while he was in an
apparel with an embroidery of the Korle Bu
Teaching Hospital logo on it and was busy
attending to patients at the Surgical Block of
the hospital.

About 10 a.m. yesterday, a source at the
hospital said, private security personnel at the
facility who had been monitoring Nurudeen’s
movements for the past one month
approached and arrested him when they
found out that he was not a medical student.
The source said Nurudeen had, for the past
one month, been seen at the Surgical Block,
sometimes attending to patients or sitting
busily behind his laptop.

“He usually chats with personnel at the wards
and the security post and is very friendly,” it

The source said the security personnel were
put on high alert when the workers at the
Surgical Block started reporting of missing
money, laptops and mobile phones.

“This morning, one of the security personnel
approached Nurudeen while he was moving
from one ward to another and was using the
lift to the fifth floor. The security man asked
him if he was a medical student and he
answered in the affirmative, but he could not
produce his identification card when he was
asked to do so,” it said.

When the security personnel asked him to
follow them to the Administration Block,
Nurudeen pleaded with them to let him go, as
he was not a medical student as earlier

Before he was handed over to the Korle Bu
Police, Nurudeen broke down in tears and
told the Daily Graphic that he had graduated
from the University of Ghana in 2013 with a
degree in Agriculture.

“I have been unemployed since, but since I
had always had a passion for medicine, I felt
like practising it to have a feel of it,” said
Nurudeen, who claimed to have obtained his
apparel from a friend whom he failed to

“I am really disappointed in myself. I am
sorry,” he said.

See Photos: Kennedy Agyapong caught “pants down”



Documents available to prove the exact opposite of claims made by New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong on Oman Fm’s Boiling Point last Thursday, that Stelin Automotive and Trading Company in 2012 paid only GH¢ 10,000 to clear six (6) Toyota Hilux pick-up vehicles belonging to Mr Ibrahim Mahama’s Engineers & Planners.

“That Stelin Company, we will go after them… Ibrahim imported Hilux. When I talk they say it’s because he is richer than me that’s why I talk about him… Someone whose brother is President, and wants to be President again… this thing he did in 2012 I will talk”, Mr Kennedy Agyapong declared on Oman FM.

“Ibrahim brought in those six Hilux pickups. Do you know the duty Engineers and Planners paid? They paid 10,000 cedis.. I swear to God… I am not against Ibrahim, I am against Steling Company.. I want the customs officer to be interrogated”, he added.

But contrary to the claims made by the lawmaker, documents with receipts sighted showed Stelin Automotive and Trading Company paid GH¢10,424.16 for each of the Toyota Hilux Pick up and not GH¢ 10,000 for all the six (6).

It has been established that the vehicles with chassis numbers MROFR22G3C0679730, MROFR22G679726, MROFR22G679638, MROFR22G679533, MROFR22G679810 and MROFR22G67921 were all cleared at a total cost of GH¢62, 544.96 through Customs Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) Ecobank account.

It is unclear where the maverick lawmaker got his information from but checks at CEPS in Tema further revealed that the amount was paid in full before the vehicles were released to the clearing agent, Stelin Automotive, and Trading Company.

A CEPS official who spoke to on condition of strict anonymity said: “Checks on whether the appropriate duties of vehicles has been paid can be done through the use of Customs SMS code by texting the chassis numbers to the shortcode 1477”.

He revealed that any car whose duty has not been paid will be exposed by the system’s shortcode of 1477.

Though the lawmaker claimed during the political programme his allegations were against Stelin Automotive and Trading Company and not E&P or Ibrahim Mahama, an aide to the businessman in response said the NPP firebrand seems to be obsessed about Mr. Ibrahim Mahama.

“The attacks on Stelin Automotive and Trading Company appeared to be an indirect way of attacking Mr. Ibrahim Mahama because the cars were cleared on behalf of Engineers &Planners Limited”, he stated.

This is not the first time Mr Kennedy Agyapong is making allegations against Mr Ibrahim Mahama which eventually turned out to be false.

Last week, the outspoken lawmaker alleged ‘some impropriety’ in the part of Mr Ibrahim Mahama over the servicing of his cars at the Air Cargo section of the Kotoka International Airport.

Officials of NACOB who supervised the disembarking of the luxury vehicles disputed Mr Kennedy Agyapong’s version of events.
