The Ghana Education Service (GES) has sacked the former headmaster of Edumanu D/A Basic School, in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District of the Central region, Mr Robert Seppey, and nine other teachers for breaching the code of conduct of the service.

Mr Seppey was sacked for sexual misconduct.

In January this year, a video of Mr Seppey having sex with his former pupil on a kitchen stool went viral on social media. The GES took over the investigation from the police after it was discovered the victim was not a minor and the affair was consensual.

Five other teachers were also sacked for sexual and immoral misconduct.

Three of the teachers have been convicted by the court for stealing and thus have been dismissed by the GES.

One teacher has also been convicted of defilement.

According to a statement from the GES, the teachers were made to go through due process before the punishment was handed down to them.

The under listed persons have been sanctioned for breaching aspects of the Code of Professional Conduct of the Ghana Education Service.


The following have had their appointments terminated:

i. Mr Vincent Nii Armah 0too – St. Francis SHTS, Akim Oda

v. Mr William Akompong – Nyankumasi SHS, Assin Nyankumasi
