A video of a male student being whipped at the Saint Stephens Presby Senior High/Technical School has emerged online despite a ban on corporal punishment in schools by the Ghana Education Service (GES).
There's no clear information about the infraction that attracted authorities in the school to sanction flogging as punishment for the student.
In the video that has since gone viral online, a man alleged to be the housemaster could be seen striking the backside of the student with a cane, allegedly flogging him with 25 strokes.
The video that lasted less than 30 seconds shows other students standing by their belongings where the incident was happening as the housemaster landed the heavy strokes behind their colleague.
Meanwhile, corporal punishment which was regulated in the past was banned in Ghana by the GES in 2019.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported an abused woman, Ofeibea Florence Aryee, has given a chilling narration about how her husband disfigured her face with acid after kicking her out of their home.
Aryee who is now extremely defaced and bed-ridden in the Emergency Triage at the Ridge Hospital in Accra disclosed that her husband ended their marriage, claiming he no longer loves her.
Speaking in an interview with Crime Check TV, Aryee whose speech has been impaired by the acid bath said her husband collected her belongings and threw them outside, and asked her to leave his house.
In a separate story, a young woman who turns discarded plastic bottles into sustainable broomsticks for cleaning has been captured on camera during her usual working hours.
The talented woman whose identity is yet to be known was spotted busily cutting some of the plastic bottles with scissors to convert them into stiff fibres.
In some of the impressive photos online, the stiff fibres have been attached to wooden handles, which is commonly used in combination with a dustpan.
