Abu Sufiano Yahya, a young ex-convict who claimed he was denied admittance by three Ghanaian senior high schools has finally gained admission into the Awe Senior High School.
The 23-year-old student had alleged that the authorities of the schools, including the Awe Senior High School, Fumbisi Senior High School, and the Sandema Senior High School refused to admit him because he is an ex-convict.
Abu Sufiano Yahya who was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment in 2016 for snatching a woman's handbag in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region bemoaned his plight in an interview with Crime Check TV.
With tuition from other inmates and wardens, he wrote and passed the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), scoring an aggregate of 16, Yahya said.
Despite bagging good grades in the BECE, he alleged that he was denied admittance by the three senior high schools because he was jailed.
Abu Sufiano Yahya has, however, gained admission to the Awe Senior High School in the Upper East Region.
