Reports by Pulse, A second year student of the Nkwatia presby senior high school goes partially blind after allegedly being slapped by the Headmaster of Academics for leaving campus without an exeat. The student identified as Diana, actually had permission to leave campus but the Headmaster refused to listen when she tried explaining to him.

He made her kneel down for a period of time and when she told him that she was unwell, his alleged response was that he’ll lash her to make her feel better. She mistakenly held his cane when he was about to lash her and this infuriated him and prompted him to land a hefty slap on her face after which he beat her up.

The development has sparked angry reactions from Ghanaians with many advocating for the arrest and prosecution of the headmaster in question, while others entreat the GES to crack the whip on him as they call on the Ghana Education Service to take action against the Headmaster immediately, since report of him leaving her partially blind.
