Speaking to Accra-based Starr FM, the victim said she is finding it difficult to endure the pain.
She said the teacher forcibly penetrated her on the farm having sent for her to bring him a bowl of water.
“He asked me to wait to return with the empty bowl. When he was done with it he asked me to come for it, immediately he grabbed me and had sex with me right there in the field. It was painful… I have not been taken to the hospital. I feel pains and bleed intermittently,” the victim narrated.
The victim has been relocated to the residence of a retired teacher [her guardian] in Bososu in the Fanteakwa district.
The police are likely to arrest the suspect today for questioning.
Meanwhile, the head teacher of Samlesi Salvation School, Florence Hevi, has promised to summon the suspect about the issue, adding she is not aware of the issue against her employee.
