A Takoradi Circuit Court on Wednesday, June 23 remanded a female trained teacher into prison custody for two weeks over charge of assault and threat against a female colleague.
The accused, Jamilatu Mohammed, 34, a teacher at the Islamic JHS at Aboadze in the Shama District of the Western Region, is to reappear on July 7, 2021 when the full merit of the case would be heard.
In remanding the accused, judge Abigail Anima Asare expressed great worry over the fact that the complainant, who was reportedly assaulted and also a teacher at the same school with the accused, is pregnant and questioned the kind of lessons pupils of the school would learn from this act.
Jamilatu, a Social Studies teacher, allegedly beat up the complainant, an English teacher, who is six months pregnant, mercilessly and in the process, removed her wig in the full glare of the JHS 3 Class and further threatened to ensure she causes her pregnancy to abort.
The two have reportedly not been on good terms with each other for over six years.
The judge has instructed the prosecutor to notify Controller and Accountant General to ensure the accused is not paid salary for the two weeks she would spend on remand.
