A teacher at Nkwanata South M/A Redeem Basic of the Oti region is alleged to have assaulted a nine-year-old pupil of her class to the point of injury for criticizing the taste of her ‘sobolo’ drink.
The pupil (name withheld), suffered multiples of injuries on her body as a result of being severely beaten by her class teacher whose name was only given as Madam Magdalene.
According to Adom News’ Obrempongba Kwame Owusu, the student was physically assaulted last week Friday after she complained to a friend in the school that the sobolo drink sold by the class teacher was not “sweet”.
The Victim’s friend then proceeded to tell the teacher after they had a slight disagreement.
The teacher is also alleged to have called the victim’s mother unprintable names while she caned her.
The student said, not even the intervention of a Primary 2 class teacher who chanced on the assault convinced Madam Magdalene to stop beating her.
Isha Razak, mother of the nine-year-old said she is pained and does not understand why the teacher keeps inflicting pain on her ward.
The victim’s mother added that she believes the teacher is out to get her daughter for reasons unknown to her.
She claims this is not the first time the said teacher she is alleged to have inflicted wounds on her daughter.
She, therefore, wants the school authorities to take up the issue and deal with the teacher.
On his part, Jonathan Korsinah, the Nkwanata South Education Director, noted the directorate has already set up a committee investigate the case.
