Lance Corporal Simon Agbeko Ekpeagba, a police officer with the Accra Police Regional Command personally handed the government's Health Insurance cards to the beneficiaries as part of his effort to give back to society.

The junior police officer noted that most people especially the aged in Sowutuom have been registered with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) mainly because they are financially challenged.

On the back of this, he paid for their cards to put an end to the number of people who come to him to request that he pays for their medical bills.

He decided to use part of his salary to embark on this exercise so that most of the people who relied on the NHIS could access health care more easily.

The police officer urged Ghanaians to do their part to help build the country.

Simon Agbeko also described his ritual benevolent gestures as a manifestation of divine directions from God, which he receives in his dreams.
