Some girl students of Ejisuman Senior High School (SHS) have been forced to appear before the school disciplinary committee for reportedly going public with their allegations regarding what they say some of the school's staff subjected them to.

Since the issue initially hit the airwaves a little while back, officials of Ejisuman SHS were ordered by the Ghana Education Service (GES) to prepare a report on the issue.

The report appears to have been necessitated by the lewd nature of stories shared by the 10 alleged sexual harassment victims.

Regarding the allegations, one student alleged that a teacher asked her to put his penis in her mouth, an account that has since incensed many who have heard about the issue.
