-The headteacher at the center of the controversy has surrendered to the police
-He reportedly vacated his post and went into hiding after the news went viral
Mr. Robert Seppey, the Headteacher of Breman Adumanu in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District of the Central Region, who was captured in a viral video with a student has reportedly turned himself in to the Police.
In a report cited on kasapafmonline.com, the head teacher reportedly turned himself in after a man hunt was organized in search of him over the incident.
Mr Seppey reportedly vacated his post and went into hiding when the video went viral on social media and sparked nationwide outrage and debate.
The matter is currently under investigation by a two-member committee set up by the Ghana Education Service (GES). As of now, the head teacher, even though not at post is believed to be holding unto his job contrary to reports that he had been sacked for his act with the student.
Mr. Seppey will also be hauled before a District Education Disciplinary Committee for a hearing and the necessary sanctions meted out to him if found guilty but for now, he has been interdicted.
Some instructions have been given to the headmaster to hand over to the Circuit Supervisor due to his impending disciplinary hearing.
Some aggrieved resident in the area have however called on the Ghana Education Service to transfer Mr. Robert Seppey from the area because of his way of life and for fear of the act being repeated.
Shockingly, the female student who was involved in the act has opened up on her relationship with the headmaster and has claimed that the two of them were dating.
Some past students of the school who corroborated the incident said it was common practice for the headmaster who was noted for having intercourse with some of the students and recording the act.
