Cape Coast: ADISCO Sack Student For Assault, Housemaster Suspended

Adisadel College has declared the outright dismissal of a student caught in a viral video violently assaulting a junior in a school’s dormitory.

A communique posted on the school’s Twitter account stated that the culprit, a final-year student, will be outrightly dismissed and will only write his final exams with the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

The dismissal, the school noted will be subject to the final decision of the school’s Board of Governors and the Ghana Education Service.

Even though the video commenced circulating very recently, the announcement stated that “The incident happened on the 30th of June, 2023 in Quaque house.”

In the purported tape, the senior holds the victim from behind and moves him in between beds before slamming his face on one of the bunk beds.

The portion of the face that hit the bed immediately is swollen with blood oozing as other students look on and another videoing.

The student victim has been sent home indefinitely, the one who recorded the incident and other witnesses who failed to report it will be subjected to differing degrees of sanctions as well as the housemaster and his deputy.

The action arrives after GES issued a communique ordering the suspension of the student and asking that the police be invited into the issue as it comprised assault.
