Investigate midwife in alleged baby thief scandal- Panelists on #GTVBreakfast

By Henrietta Afful

Health Professionals have been asked to perform their duties diligently to ensure quality healthcare delivery, rather than indulging in activities that tarnish the image of their work.

Speaking on the arrest and subsequent remand of four alleged baby thieves in the Western region on the GTV’s Breakfast Show, a member of the Communications Team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ellen Ama Daaku said the nursing profession is a noble one and therefore practitioners should work to the satisfaction of all Ghanaians.

She urged the police to investigate a former midwife found to be at the center of the alleged baby stealing syndicate. This, she said, will help the Police to know about her activities during her working days.

For her part, a former Chair of the Convention People’s Party, Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, said there are heartless and criminal people within the nursing profession and that is worrying for a profession that is responsible for ‘saving’ lives.

Hajia Ibrahim said baby stealing is the highest form of cruelty and nurses should be educated on the dangers of engaging in this act.

She said anybody who knows about the activities of the alleged stealing and sale of babies but keeps mute, will be questioned by Allah.


Four persons, including a retired midwife, allegedly involved in the stealing and sale of babies at Atuabo and Half Assini in the Western Region have been arrested by the National Investigative Bureau (NIB).

The accused persons are; Cynthia Beyeden, a 63-year-old Retired Midwife/ Nurse, Sylvester Quashie Nyamekeh, a mason, Ediemu Bozoma, a 55-year-old trader, Cynthia Quashie, a private security and one Mr Quashie now at large.

An Accra Circuit Court, on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 remanded the four into the custody of the National Investigative Bureau (NIB).
