The Attorney General, Godfred Dame, has initiated steps to prosecute the student of Adisadel College seen in a viral video choking and abusing his colleague.
sources reveal that the Attorney General, on Tuesday, directed his regional director to collaborate with the Ghana Police Service and begin investigations into the matter.
After the initial investigations, the AG, who sources say is very disturbed about the incident, is expecting charges to be filed in court against the perpetrator by Friday.
The disturbing video shows a student thought to be a senior, locking the neck of another student within his elbow lock and hitting his head against a metallic object, causing an immediate swelling and a cut on the victim’s right cheek.
The violent video which has been circulating on social media, has sparked outrage and raised concerns about the safety of students within the country’s educational institutions.
Since the video went viral, the perpetrator has been suspended along with the victim for failing to report the incident. The housemaster has also lost his post.
Officials of the Ghana Education Service (GES), in reaction to the incident, have noted that they were deeply concerned and strongly condemn the barbaric act by the culprit and are taking immediate action.
“We applaud the school authorities for taking swift action to suspend the culprit pending further investigation,” parts of a release by the GES read.
