JOSEPH AMUZU, a 64-year-old headmaster of the Justice Nii Amaa Ollennu Memorial Basic School at La in Accra has been arrested by the police for defiling a 15-year-old class six pupil of his school on two occasions. In both incidents, Amuzu was said to have invited the unsuspecting victim to his office where he carried out the acts.
According to the police, last year, the headmaster invited the girl to his office one afternoon and defiled her. His victim had since been quiet over the incident. However, Amuzu’s secret act came out when six months ago, he invited the victim to his office again during break time and subjected her to another round of sex.
The minor, offended by the act, reported the matter to the Director of the School and a teacher. The matter was later reported to the victim’s mother who, in turn, reported it to the police.
Amuzu was picked up at his Dansoman residence on Thursday night by the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) officers. The headmaster is currently in police custody. Chief Inspector Whoknows Attipoe, the station officer, said Amuzu would be charged when investigations were completed.
