Volta Region: Court Sentence Student 4 Years In Prison For Stabbing His Teacher

The Aflao Circuit Court has sentenced the final year student of Three Town Senior High School student who stabbed his ICT teacher with knife for four years in prison.

The nineteen year old boy, Gilbert Akakpo was arraigned before the court by police prosecution for causing harm to John Kwashi Akey, an ICT tutor in August this year

The prosecution added that the victim sustained a deep cut on the arm and was sent to Ketu South Municipal Hospital for treatment

The convict was later handed to police by his own father who was also present for his son's prosecution

The presiding judge, His Honour Joseph Ofosu on Tuesday, November 30,2021 convicted and sentenced Gilbert Akakpo, the accused to four years in prison with hard labour

The parent and family were all sad and begged but the judge said the court was even lenient on the convict as a first time offender, but the punishment was necessary to serve as deterrent to other students who have no respect for school authorities.
