Teacher Arrested For Impregnating Class 6 Girl

A 28-year-old teacher David Ananga has been arrested by the Tamale Police for defiling and impregnating a 15-year-old Class 6 pupil.

The victim, who is a pupil of the teacher, was later sent for an abortion but the procedure turned sour as the girl started bleeding afterwards.

The father of the victim Ibrahim Mohammed, upon learning what had befallen her, reported the matter to the Police and the suspect was arrested.

Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, the Northern Regional Coordinator of the Domestic Violence & Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU), ASP Emmanuel Holortu said Ibrahim Mohammed reported the case to them and added that the girl was sent to a facility for further attention.

According to ASP Emmanuel Holortu, it has also been discovered that the suspect is discredited with impregnating nine pupils in various schools but the anomaly had been covered by the school authorities.

Also arrested alongside the suspect is a certain Frederick Akoto, who accompanied the prime suspect to the facility for the ill-fated abortion.

After the completion of the procedure without the knowledge of the parents of the kid, the girl was given GHC5 and asked to go home.

The Police PRO added that the girl bled profusely at home and her curious father took her to another facility for a better treatment.

The authorities were said to have transferred the randy teacher to another school when they learnt that the Police were on his heels.

David said the man who was going to perform the abortion asked about the whereabouts of her mother and he (David) said the girl is his sister and that her mother who had traveled to Kumasi asked him to stand in for her, the police stated.

The suspect and his accomplice, who are in police custody, were due to appear before court yesterday.

David Ananga has been charged with defilement and causing illegal abortion while his accomplice Frederick Akoto has been charged with aiding the commitment of the aforementioned offences.
