Almost a year after the arrest of a 32-year-old Social Studies teacher at the Kulpi R/C Junior High School in the Savannah Region following accusations that he had sodomised 18 pupils, he has finally been sentenced to seven years of imprisonment on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
According to 3news.com, the Tamale Circuit Court, presided over by His Lordship Alexander Oware, found Natogmah Yamousa Otabil guilty of the charges proffered against him and jailed him in hard labour.
It would be recalled that police in Salaga arrested the convict in September last year following a report by the East Gonja Municipal Education Director.
When Yamousa Otabil was put before the court, he pleaded guilty to all the charges leveled against him by prosecutor.
Then, on Thursday, November 4, 2021, he was released on bail and the trial process has since been ongoing.
