The headmaster of Jachie Pramso Senior High School has got many Ghanaians angry over how he mercilessly beats the hell out of a female student which has left her severely bruised.
Mary Gabriel Amoako, 18, is reported to have been mercilessly beaten by the headmaster last Thursday, September 2, 2021, causing bruises and cuts on her back and shoulders.
Narrating the details, the girl’s grandfather, Mr. Ofosu, explained that the headmaster had seized the cardigan of one of the students because he was not wearing a school uniform.
This left the student bare-chested and in solidarity with him, friends of Mary pleaded with her to release her cardigan to the boy until he was able to get a school uniform.
Upon seeing the boy with another cardigan, the report added, the headmaster got furious and asked whose cardigan he was wearing.
“As a result, he summoned all students present to further enquire about who helped the boy with the cardigan. Fearing they might be punished collectively, a boy pointed at Mary, following which the rest were freed,” the report stated.

It continued that the headteacher then asked Mary to hold onto a pillar and beat her back with a cane until she suffered bruises.
Mary Gabriel Amoako who is sitting for the ongoing West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) said she has not been herself since the brutal lashing.
She told the host of Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma on Tuesday, September 7 that she did not see any justification for the headmaster’s action.
