A JHS student penalized GH1,800 for instigating an attack on a teacher.


A final year student at Nungua Kroma Two Junior High School was fined GHS1,800 by an Accra Juvenile Court for assaulting a teacher for penalizing him.
In the event of a default, the student would be sentenced to three months in prison.

He denied conspiring with 15 other guys to assault the teacher for punishing him for not doing his homework, but the Court found him guilty at the end of the trial.
To prove its case, the prosecution called five witnesses. It had previously informed the Court that the defendant (name withheld) had refused to do his assignment.
He hurried home after being chastised to summon 15 other young males, who allegedly stormed the school in a Sprinter bus and assaulted the instructor, inflicting facial wounds.

Mr Moses Onyameasem, the teacher, was rescued by his colleagues and transported to Accra’s LEKMA Hospital, where he was treated and released.
The pupil’s mother was also accused of going to the School after the attack and verbally assaulting the instructor, according to the prosecution, which led to the School’s closure.

The instructor, accompanied by Mr Roger Asempa, the Head Teacher, proceeded to the Police Station to report the attack on Monday, February 22, 2021, around 12:15 p.m.

A student in his class and 15 other young men from Nungua Town arrived at the school in a bus at about 12:00 a.m. to physically assault him, according to the teacher.
According to the prosecution, the complaint was given a medical document to fill out in order to seek medical attention, and a joint stakeholder meeting was held to discuss the occurrence.
