"…all efforts are being made to engage the students concerned through counseling sessions to avert any psychological issues that may arise as a result of the viral video," it noted.

A video that captures an Anglican Church Reverend Father kissing some female students of St Monica's College Of Education in the Asante-Mampong Diocese went viral on the internet.

In the video, the Reverend Father purposely removed his nose mask before kissing the female students who took turns to receive whatever blessing the preacher may have promised them.

The church members made up of both elderly and young people, are seen gleefully jumping and screaming to cheer up the man of God's kissing spree.
