The defendant was given four years of jail time by the Suhum Circuit Court in hard labor for engaging in illegal abortion, claiming he has “blessed hands” that deliver when it comes to conducting abortions.
Mr Darko appeared to be a well-known abortion doctor in the Eastern Area, particularly in Suhum, where his hospital, located at Mile 44 in Suhum, was the destination for girls and women who, for some reason, needed to get rid of pregnancies.
For several ladies who frequented his services, Mr Darko’s abortions resulted in problems. This led to the Ghana Health Service and Ghana Police Service inquiries.

We got reports that someone in Suhum Municipality is carrying out illegal abortion and on the basis of this knowledge, the Suhum district police command assembled and arrested the suspect now at his hiding place, and when we examined him, we were able to collect medical devices and drugs and charged him before the court and sentenced him to four years in jail.
