A video of the Head Teacher of Edumanu D/A Basic School allegedly having sex with one of his pupils has sparked outrage at Breman Edumanu in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District of the Central region, Ghana.
The Headmaster, whose name has been given only as Mr. Sepey, is seen in a video believed to be recorded by him during the alleged act.
According to some aggrieved past students of the school, the headmaster is alleged to be in the habit of having sexual affairs with the school children and takes video recordings of the acts.
Some residents also alleged that until the emergence of this sex tape, the headmaster who is noted for such behaviour demanded evidence anytime parents accused him of such acts.
Some community members who said they felt embarrassed by the development, have threatened demonstrations against the headmaster if he is not dealt with accordingly.
Meanwhile, in October last year, a former school aide and coach in Maryland was arrested for sexually assaulting 42 boys.
30-year-old Carlos Bell, who is HIV positive, worked as an instructional assistant at Benjamin Stoddert Middle School and track coach at La Plata High School.
He sexually assaulted about 42 boys who are between 11 and 17 years old and the assaults happened from May 2015 to June 2017. He was taken into custody in July for child pornography and sexually assaulting male students.
Police began their investigation in December after a parent found inappropriate text messages on her son’s cell phone. A search of Bell’s home computer turned up child porn, including images of him allegedly having sex with a boy inside a classroom at Benjamin Stoddert, NBC reports. Carlos later told police that he is HIV positive and has been for the past two years. Authorities have not said whether any of the victims contracted the disease.
Investigators said the assaults happened at his home, on school property and possibly other locations. The State’s Attorney’s Office for Charles County indicted Mr Bell on 206 counts. The indictment covers 28 identified alleged victims and 14 unidentified victims. The indictment includes allegations stemming from incidents on June 30 and July 28 and charges for additional alleged victims police found following an investigation.
Bell no longer works at Benjamin Stoddert or La Plata. Authorities said he was also employed at McDonough High School in Pomfret and J.P. Ryon Elementary in Waldorf.
