Dep. Nifa SHS headmistress sues headmaster for rape.
The Headmaster of the Nifa Senior High School in the Eastern region has been sued by his Assistant Headmistress for attempted rape.
Anna Duodo is accusing Alex Acquah of sexual assault and attempting to rape her in May last year in his office.
She is also challenging her transfer from the school by the Regional Education Director following a complaint of rape.
The assistant headmistress filed the suit at the Akropong circuit court following several petitions to the Educational Directorate and the Ghana National Association of Teachers.
Excerpts of the petition seen by Starrfmonline.com read: “As I entered his office, he seized hold of me, dragged me to a chair, tripped me up into it and sat astride me, I was in a skirt and a buttoned top, he debuttoned the top, took hold of my breasts and fondled them.
“Because there was no one around, all my distress cum protests yells came to naught.
“At this point, he had fully worked himself into a frenzy, he pulled me from the chair and tried to stretch me on a table while he stripped himself naked, he relaxed his grip on me and when he was almost stark naked he let go completely of me.
“Perhaps he thought I had yielded or had been prostrated by the struggle. Then I made an escape with the little strength in me before he fully got out of his boxer pant”.
