Professor Kwesi Opoku Amankwa, Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), has disclosed that the final year student of Sekondi College, Nicholas Cobbinah who insulted President Akufo-Addo is noted for being notorious and violent.
According to him, the attack on President Akufo-Addo was not the first but the third time the student had breached school rules.
“Even though the Sekondi College student destroyed nothing but their misconduct and behavior was distasteful. This is the third time the boy in question has done that and always does it with a friend. Nicolas Cobbinah was first arrested in March for assaulting one of the students, knocking out six of his teeth but his parent later agreed to fix the boy’s teeth and was suspended,” Professor Opoku Amankwa said in UTV’s “Adekye Nsroma”.
Professor Opoku Amakwa further revealed that Nicholas Cobbinah returned to school following the President’s clearance for final years to return to school.
“Briefly after the return, he headbutted someone and there was blood oozing from the person’s nose and he was suspended again. So, he came from home everyday to write the paper. It was until this issue that we got to know about his violent behavior. How can a child behave like that?“ he questioned.
