Lawyer Sammy Darko has reacted to the arrest of the alleged baby harvesting syndicated.
He wonders why Ghanaians are applauding the Medical and Dental Council and the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) for their collaboration in arresting the suspects.
The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) in collaboration with the Medical and Dental Council have arrested some doctors, nurses, and social welfare workers over baby harvesting crimes.
It said the investigation was done between June to November 2020.
A joint statement by the two bodies disclosed they have been investigating the allegation of baby harvesting in some medical facilities since 2020.
As a result of the probe two medical doctors, two social workers, four nurses two mothers, and one traditional birth attendant have been arrested.
They have since been granted bail pending further investigations.
Two baby boys who were bought as a result of the operation have been rescued.
The arrested doctors are Dr. Hope Mensah Quarshie, who works with the 37 Military Hospital, and Dr. Noah Kofi Lartey who also works with Greater Accra Regional Hospital.
The two institutions have been commended but lawyer Sammy Darko who is part of Tiger Eye PI has wondered why Ghanaians are celebrating the method used by the two bodies.
He said he felt Ghanaians would have been appalled by the entrapment used.
“I thought they did be appalled by the entrapment method used by the team. The doctors, nurses and birth attendants were sitting their somewhere and they ENTICED and or TRAPPED them with money and they sold a baby or two to them.”
His piece stern from the way Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been constantly berated for his style of investigation.
Some are of the view that his style is entrapment and the role who fall to his method deserve justice.

I see a lot of folks celebrating the Dental & medical council and EOCO arrest of baby harvesters/ trafficking . I thought they did be appalled by the entrapment method used by the team. The doctors, nurses and birth attendants were sitting their somewhere and they ENTICED and or TRAPPED them with money and they sold a baby or two to them.
This sort of method is cruel, it’s not good. You don’t trap people to sell babies to you and turn around and say they are criminals. You went to them to buy the babies, they were sitting their somewhere and doing their jobs. You actually set them up.
WE WANT THE RAW TAPE. So we see how they were entrapped. We demand justice for these innocent medical people who were merely setup.
I am so angry at EOCO and Dental and Medical Council. Ghanaians must condemn this type of trapping people and calling them criminals. It is WRONG.
