The Headmaster of Nkwanta Senior High School in the Volta Region, Paul Boafo Nyarko has accused students of the school of raping female teachers and wives of teachers.
According to him, the reprehensible action by these unscrupulous students have left the victims with huge psychological trauma.
“….GOING AS FAR AS RAPING RAPING TEACHER’S WIVES, FEMALE TEACHERS ON CAMPUS, SO THEY’VE [TEACHERS] GONE THROUGH A LOT OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMA. SO BEFORE EVEN THEY CAN GO AND STAND BEFORE THE STUDENTS AND TEACH THEM, THEY NEED A PSYCHO THERAPIST TO COME AND TAKE THEM THROUGH ALL THOSE THINGS SO THAT THEY’LL BE ABLE TO RE-PSYCHE THEMSELVES BEFORE THEY CAN GO BACK TO THE CLASSROOMS.” MR PAUL BOAFO NYARKO ALLEGED.
The School has been closed down following massive destruction of school properties by some rampaging students last week Monday night. They went on the rampage after some teachers had seized their mobile phones during a roll call in some of the dormitories last Monday.
Among the properties vandalized are three staff bungalows, 26 motorbikes belonging to teachers, five vehicles, including a pick-up, two school buses, a tipper truck and a car belonging to the Nkwanta Divisional Police Commander.
Due to the painful experience, the teachers are thus requesting for a one month period to recover from the psychological trauma they’ve suffered as a result of last week’s students’ riot.
