A female Pupil at Asokore Methodist Primary School in the New Juaben Municipality in the Eastern Region was stripped naked by her school teacher after he accused her of stealing an amount of Eleven Ghana Cedis ( GH¢11.00 ) belonging to the Headmaster of the school.
The girl and her other female colleague were alleged to have stolen the money when they entered the Headmaster’s office last week Friday to clean the office before normal classes commenced.
She was considered by the teacher as the prime suspect because she was the School’s Girls Prefect and was responsible for the day to day cleaning of the Headmaster’s office.
The Headteacher who doubles as the Mathematics, Religious and Moral Studies invited the girl into the Staff Common Room and conducted a search on her.
After a meticulous search on the accused turned victim, the money was not found on her.
However, unsatisfied with the search, Madam Faustina Mireku, who is a pupil teacher at the school subjected the girl to another dehumanising search by stripping her naked in the full glare of her colleague male teachers.
The nasty scene attracted other pupils who besieged the Staff Common Room in their numbers to catch a glimpse of the nudity of the girl.
The girl’s father, who was furious and disappointed by the conduct of the headteacher and the madam has since filed a formal complaint to the police.
He described the conduct of the teacher as embarrassing and a clear violation of the human rights of his daughter and he is therefore calling on the police to let justice take its natural course.
