A 47-year-old teacher of Ndewura Jakpa Senior Technical School in the West Gonja District of the Northern region is alleged to have forcibly had sex with a 17-year-old SHS one female student in his room in Damango.
Narrating the incident, Alhassan Razak, father of the victim said the teacher, known as Solomon Lotsu who teaches ICT in the school invited two female students including his daughter to his house over the weekend to help him clean his room.
He said the teacher eventually sent the other student on an errand and asked her not to return, leaving him alone with his daughter in the room.
He further claimed the teacher locked his daughter in the room overnight and forcibly had sex with her.
According to Mr Razak, he was alarmed her daughter was not home for the weekend as she always does and thus decided to check up on her in school but was told she did not return to the dormitory the previous night.
He said he lodged a complaint with the Damango police whose investigations discovered the girl was in the custody of the teacher.
The police subsequently issued a General Medical form to the West Gonja hospital to have the lady examined for alleged rape.
The medical report which 3news.com has intercepted did not however establish a case of rape but stated in parts that “no obvious bruises and laceration. Hymen open”.
The medical report also indicated the girl had started her menstruation on December 1, the same day she is alleged to have been raped, something she admitted during the examination.
The victim was not sure during the medical examination whether there was an attempted penetration, successful penetration or ejaculation be it through her vagina, mouth or anus.
The police are expected to process Solomon Lotsu for court upon the receipt of the medical report.
