|Head teacher of Adumanu D/A Basic School, Mr. Robert Seppey who has been identified in a sex tape with one Miss Priscilla Tettey Abartey, a final year student of Odoben Senior High School has been relieved of his post.
The District Directorate of Ghana Education Service has set up a two member committee (CPC and Basic School Coordinators) to probe into the matter; thus the head teacher involved is to meet the disciplinary committee for the appropriate disciplinary actions.
On Wednesday 17th January, 2018, a journalist called the District Director of Education to inform him of a sex video tape involving a Junior High School (JHS) girl called Priscilla Martey and Mr. Seppey, the head teacher of Adumanu D/A Basic School.
Information received by Peacefmonline.com indicates that based on the call, the Director and the PRO went to Adumanu to make enquiries about the girl and it was established that the girl’s real name is Priscilla Tettey Abartey and a form 3 student of Odoben Senior High School (SHS).
The Director and the PRO proceeded to Odoben SHS to confirm the presence of the girl in the school and the headmistress of Odoben SHS confirmed that the girl is a day student there but had gone home because the school had closed; however the Director requested that the girl be brought to the District office for questioning the next day.
On Friday 19th January, 2018, Priscilla Tettey and the assistant headmaster of Odoben SHS came to meet the District Director of Education (DDE) at the office and the following were the statements from Priscilla.
. She completed her JHS at Adumanu D/A Basic School
. She is currently a final year student in Odoben SHS
. She and the Head teacher were in a relationship but are no more
. The video was recorded at Adumanu in the head teacher’s room almost a year ago
. Both of them agreed to record the video whiles they were having sex so that they will watch later
. She was born on July 26, 1999
. The video was on her memory chip and her brother saw the video when he collected her phone to transfer songs. Other friends of her brother also saw the video and they decided to spread it because they had proposed to her and she refused.
The District Director however met with the head teacher of Adumanu D/A Basic School, whose name was given as Mr. Robert Seppey.
He therefore confessed as the one in the video tape, adding that he was sorry for the incident; thus, he was asked to report to the office and to hand over affairs of the school to his Circuit Supervisor in order for him to assist in the investigation in the case.
A team of officers led by the District Director of Education, Mr. Isaac Godwin Kwasi Acquaah-Arhin on Monday 22nd January, 2018 met the leaders of Adumanu, the Assemblyman of the area, the girl’s father and some members of the community to see how best all the parties can resolve the issue.
The community members as well as the father of the girl told the DDE and his team not to have any problem with the head teacher who had sex with his daughter including the teachers of the school; thus, they don’t have any intentions to harm them.
They however have decided to focus their attention on the one who leaked the sex video tape to the public, claiming they know the person behind the circulation of the video tape.
