The headmaster of Jachie Pramso Senior High School has caused outrage after allegedly flogging 18year old Mary Gabriel Amoako, a WASSCE student mercilessly last week Thursday, leaving her bruised.
Narrating the details of the heinous event, the girl’s grandfather, Mr. Ofosu, explained that the headmaster had seized the cardigan of one of the students because he was not wearing the school uniform beneath his sweater.
Friends then pleaded with Mary to release her cardigan to the boy until he was able to get a school uniform as the male student was left bare-chested.
Upon seeing the boy with another cardigan, the headmaster reportedly got angry and asked whose cardigan he was wearing.
“As a result, he summoned all students present to further enquire about who helped the boy with the cardigan. Fearing they might be punished collectively, a boy pointed at Mary, following which the rest were freed,” the report stated.
The headteacher in anger then asked Mary to hold on to a pillar and beat her back with a cane leaving her with fatal bruises from the welts of the cane
Mary, who is sitting for the ongoing West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), has gone viral since photos of her bruises were shared online.
She said she has not been herself since the brutal beating, and speaking to the host of Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma on Tuesday, September 7, she said she did not see any justification for the headmaster’s action.
