In a recent court case at the Wa Magistrate Court, a final-year student from the Wa Technical Institute, Yissif Mudaair, was found guilty of physically assaulting his school’s housemaster, Ishmail Musah Froko. As a result of his plea, the court convicted him and ordered a GH¢2000 fine to cover the teacher’s treatment expenses, which will be borne by the student’s parents.
Additionally, the court directed Yissif Mudaair to sign a bond committing to good behavior for a year; failure to comply could lead to imprisonment for the same duration. The judge took into account the fact that the accused was a student and a first-time offender during the verdict.
Another individual, Salifu Razak, who was also implicated in the assault, did not appear in court. However, Christian Kieseh Confidence was discharged as investigations proved his innocence in the crime.
After the court’s ruling, Ishmail Musah Froko expressed satisfaction, believing that the verdict would serve as a deterrent to other students in the school and across the country. He emphasized his desire for the best outcome for the convicted student, recognizing that the offender is still his student.
