National Security has arrested three persons for their alleged involvement in the stealing and sale of vaccines. Stephen Dzisenu, Joseph Knight Gaisie and Cosmos Allotey have been remanded into lawful custody. The three are to reappear in Accra Circuit Court on April 1. Other persons involved in the crime are yet to be arrested, the prosecution said. The National Security Operatives received intelligence that some health officials had been stealing and selling the Covid-19 vaccines brought in by the Government of Ghana.
The court turned down the bail application put in by defence counsel. Allotey was arrested when he was invited to Labone in Accra to inject the complainant at a fee of GH¢200.00. The prosecution said during interrogation, Allotey mentioned Dzisenu and Pabitey as his source. He said he also bought 26 vials of the COVIDSHIELD from Pabitesy at the cost of GH¢4,800.000.
