According to a Citi News report, after a visit to the school on Thursday, June 3, 2021, it was confirmed that Oheneba reported to the school and completed the admission process.

The acceptance of Oheneba follows an Accra High Court ruling ordering the management of the school to admit both Oheneba Nkrabea and Tyrone Marhguy.

Meanwhile, earlier this month the Achimota School and the office of the Attorney General filed an Appeal and dragged Tyrone Marghuy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, the two Rastafarian students of Achimota School to court.

The boys had sued the Achimota School Board of Governors, the Minister of Education, the Ghana Education Service, and the Attorney General for refusing to enroll them.

On May 31, the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court ruled that the fundamental human rights of the two students cannot be limited by the rules of the school.

The school is arguing that, the court erred by declaring that the rules and regulations of the school regarding uniformity are unlawful and interferes with one’s religious rights.
