The Headmaster of the Nkwanta Senior High School (SHS), Paul Boafo Nyarko has alleged that the wives of teaching staff, as well as some female teachers, were raped last Tuesday by students during riots at the school.
According to him, as a result, the teachers are not psychologically ready to return to the classrooms on Monday and will need a one-month period to recover from the trauma.
He said: “Going as far as raping teacher’s wives, raping female teachers on campus, so they (the teachers) have gone through a lot of psychological trauma.
“So before even they can go and stand in front of the students and teach them, they need a psychotherapist to come and take them through all those things so that they will be able to re-psyche themselves before they can go back to the classrooms”.
The school was closed down last week following riots staged by students on October 30, 2018 in protest of the seizure of their mobile phones.
