The former headmaster of Edumanu D/A Basic school in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District of the Central region, Mr Robert Seppey popularly known as ‘Kitchen stool Headmaster’ has finally broken his silence concerning the sex scandal with his student.
According to the headmaster, the girl involved was his girlfriend with whom he was in a relationship who was in Senior High School and not his student as circulated by the media.
“I was a headteacher for a basic school and I was in a relationship with a girl who wasn’t my student.
She was in her third year in secondary school and was not 16 years as circulated because as of 2016, she was eligible to vote”, he disclosed.

According to the headmaster, they had a mutual understanding concerning the recording of the sex video and decided to delete it after watching.
He stated that to their knowledge the video was deleted but unknowingly it was on the memory card which belonged to his girlfriend, Priscilla.
“The memory chip belonged to Priscilla and she wasn’t aware the video was still on it. Her brother requested to use the card and that was where he saw the video and showed it to his friends.
This resulted in me being blackmailed by one of his friends and when I failed to heed to his request, he shared the video”, he added.
This resulted in Robert Seppey being dismissed on the grounds of breaching the code of conduct of the service.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) announced his dismissal on Friday, 23rd November 2018 for sexual misconduct.
In January last year,(2018) a video of Mr Seppey having sex with his former pupil on a kitchen stool went viral on social media.
The GES took over the investigation from the police after it was discovered the victim was not a minor and the affair was consensual.
