The Kasoa Police in Ghana have arrested a 36-year-old teacher of Janine Happy Quashie Home International School identified as Isaac Bentum, for impregnating two Junior High School (JHS) students from the same parents.
Local media Citi Newsroom reported that the impregnated students are in JHS 2 and 3 respectively in the same school at Senya Beraku in Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region.
Confirming the incident, the Uncle of the two sisters, Mr. Barnabas Abban, told newsmen that the teacher who lured the girls with the promise of helping them to pass their final year examination, defiled the final year JHS 3 pupil, and impregnated her, and did the same a month later to the younger sister.
According to him, the teacher’s arrest came after he reported the matter to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit Department of the Kasoa Divisional Police Command. ASP Florence Annaman, the Kasoa Divisional Commander of DOVVSU, also confirmed the incident in an interview with Ghana News Agency, as he noted that the accused was yet to be processed for court.
Vincent Otoo,an assistant headmaster of St. Francis Senior High Technical at Akim Oda was also in the news some months ago after he impregnated a 16-year-old student of the aforementioned citadel.
The student identified as Abigail was 7 months pregnant at the time of the report, however, the authorities in the school tried their possible best to silence the development. Close sources to Abigail and Mr.Vincent Otoo alleged that in an attempt to cover up issues, a tutor in the school identified Elder Obenu led a delegation to the parents of Abigail, the pregnant student of St. Francis Senior High Technical School, basically to lure the parents to cease-fire.
Although, the parents never accepted the request of the school authorities to settle the case home.
