Peki SHS PTA demands probe of headteacher over alleged sexual assault of student


The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of Peki Senior High School in the Volta Region has petitioned the Volta Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to investigate allegations of rape and sexual assault levelled against the headteacher of the School.

The latest allegation against the headteacher, Jonathan Delase Agble, involves a pregnant student.

The PTA has thus reported the matter to the Police in Peki Avetile while petitioning the GES for the removal of the headteacher.

According to the latest victim, Mr Agble tried to convince her to have sex with him to ensure her baby was not born deformed.

“He said because the guy who impregnated me is not on campus, he will take me as his daughter and then do everything that will be needed.”

She also said the teacher threatened her and eventually raped her.

“He forced and had sex with me and led me to the high gate and asked me to go back to campus but warned me not to tell anybody.”

According to the victim who has been granted exeat to seek medical help at home, she has been suffering abdominal pains since the rape.

Upon reaching the school premises, Citi News also identified six girls who admitted that the headteacher had made sexual advances towards them.

The PTA chairman, Mr Christian Ani-Frimpong in a Citi News interview explained that the association had no option than to report the matter to the police and seek the intervention of the Ghana Education Service.

“We are petitioning GES to intervene because they are the owners of the school and if an incident of this nature happens, it is only fair that we call on them to investigate the matter so well so that the truth of the matter will be established.”

When contacted for his response to the allegations, Mr. Agble said rather wants the authorities to investigate the allegations.
