A Science Teacher at Light Academy at Akyerensua in the Ahafo Region has reportedly impregnated the schools’ girls’ prefect.
The teacher, Mr Ebenezer Kuma, who has been housing the girl for the past 8 months ended up having sexual relations with her.
Speaking on Omanba FM, the Principal of the School, Mr Sekeyere Twumasi Ankara, confirmed that the school’s Girls Perfect has been pregnant by their Science Teacher.
The Headmaster told the media that the parents of the victim had been brought into the school for talks after the school first aid nurse established that the student was really pregnant and that their Science Teacher, Ebenezer Kumah, was to blame for the pregnancy.
The Headmaster explained that the student did not become pregnant on school grounds, but rather had been living with the teacher for the past eight months, which is how the student acquired the pregnancy.
The Headmaster said the teacher was arrested, he assured Akyerensua parents and guardians that, the incident didn’t take place on the school grounds because they have the most strict and well-enforced school rules in the school that protect students.
The pregnant student was cohabitating with the teacher while commuting to school every day he added.
”We haven’t gotten to the bottom of the case yet, and I filed a formal police complaint this morning for the arrest of the teacher, and I can say with authority that the science teacher who committed the alleged offence has been arrested, and the police are now in charge of the investigation” He said.
The student is believed to have been living with her Science Teacher since January 2021. The student’s parents were planning to relocate from Akyerensua in October 2020 for job reasons, but they were unable to find a suitable house for their daughter.
They left the care of their daughter to Ebenezer Kuma, the School’s that agreed to look after the student when the parents relocated from Akyerensua to Tamale.
The instructor took advantage of the circumstance and impregnated the student
The Headmaster added, that he learned about the event on Monday after one of the female teachers brought it to his notice.
They were concerned the student might temper with the pregnancy so they tested her right away to be sure she was telling the truth before alerting the Akyerensua Police.
”The unfortunate part is that he even tried to persuade the student to abort the pregnancy which just adds to his problems.” He concluded.
