Teacher Jailed 7 Years For Defiling 18 Pupils In A Month.

Natogmah Otabil, a social studies teacher at Kulpi Junior High School in the Savannah Region, has been given a seven-year sentence by a Tamale circuit court for defiling 18 students at the school. The defendant was apprehended on September 27, 2021, after some victims' families alerted Salaga police to a case of defiling.

The accused entered a plea of guilty and the case was sent to the Tamale circuit court for hearing. However, the defense attorney requested a psychiatric evaluation, which the court granted. A report of the medical examination performed at the Pantang hospital was then provided to the court, but the judge rejected it.

The Tamale Teaching Hospital performed additional testing, which was then presented to the court. His Lordship Alexander Oware, the presiding judge, handed down the defendant's seven-year sentence during today's hearing, which was conducted in secret. The residents of Kupil indulge themselves in the issues until the final verdict.
