The Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa District Directorate of the Ghana Education Service [GES], has indicated that it has ordered the head teacher caught in a widely circulated sex video, Robert Seppey, to hand over the administration of the Breman Adamanu D/A Basic School to the circuit supervisor of the area.
In a release issued on Tuesday by the District Director of Education, Isaac Godwin Kwesi Acquaah-Arhin, the headteacher, who is believed to be in his forties confessed to the Education Directorate on January 19, that he was indeed the one in the video.
It also says the head teacher pleaded to be forgiven for his conduct, but he was instead ordered to report to the office to hand over his responsibility to the circuit supervisor, to enable him assist the police in their investigations.
The Directorate further noted that, the meeting with the head teacher came shortly after the office met the girl in the video, Priscilla Tettey, in the presence of the Assistant Headmaster of Odoben Senior High School, where she is a student.
The release says she confessed she was a former student Breman Adamanu D/A Basic School, and that she and the head teacher have been in a relationship for some time.
Again, the Directorate says she admitted that she and the head teacher agreed to film their sexual act.
However, a brother of the lady found the video on her memory chip after he took her phone to transfer some songs.
“Other friends of her brother also saw the video and they decided to spread it because they had proposed love to her and she refused,” an update from the Service on Tuesday explained.
According to the Directorate, it has set up a two member committee to probe the matter, while Mr. Seppey is to meet the District Education Disciplinary Committee for appropriate sanctions.
The head teacher is believed to be hiding somewhere, making it difficult for the police to carry out with their investigation.
As a further step, a team of officers led by the District Director of Education, met the community leaders and the Assembly Member of the area, as well as the girl’s parents on Monday to address the issue.
The release explained that, “The community members as well as the father of the girl told the District Director of Education and his team that they have no problem with the head teacher or teachers of the basic school, and have no intentions of harming them”.
