According to reports reaching us, a teacher in the Central Region's Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem Municipality has allegedly impregnated three girls from his school.
This was revealed during a session hosted by the Ghana Education Service Counselling and Guidance Centre in Kwadaso, Ashanti Region, to train school-based counselors on the need of providing psychosocial support to students.
He went on to say that a formal complaint had been filed against the teacher and that proper punishment will be imposed.
Seven additional girls in the municipality have been impregnated by close relatives.
According to Dr. Kyeremeh, the COVID-19 restrictions subjected the youngsters to a variety of atypical forms of abuse, resulting in psychological repercussions.
According to Stephen Asare Brew, the Kwadaso Municipal Educational Coordinator of the GES Counsellor and Guidance section, these abuses have had a physiological impact on the youngsters, resulting in suicide in some of them.
He went on to say that the youngsters who have been exposed to some of these crimes and are suffering psychologically want immediate help.
