Student who insulted Nana Addo has a reputation for being violent, notorious – GES Boss

Nicholas Cobbinah, the final year Sekondi College student who insulted President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has a reputation for being notorious and violent, Professor Opoku-Amankwa, the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service has revealed.

Professor Opoku-Amankwa said on Peace FM that the attack on the president was the third time the student had breached school rules.

He revealed that in February this year, Cobbinah beat an SHS two students to pulp and knocked out his teeth.

The issue was taken up by the police who prepared a docket for court proceedings but the pleas by his parents convinced the victim’s parents to opt for home settlement.

Again, weeks after school resumed, Cobbinah headbutted another student and was suspended for the act.

“The Sekondi case is distasteful. This is the third time the boy has done that and he always does with a friend. Around February 26, he beat some Form two students and knocked out six of his teeth. It became a police case but his parent agreed to fix the teeth. But he was suspended.”

“He returned following the President’s clearance for final years to return to school. Briefly, after the return, he headbutted someone and there was blood from the person’s nose and he was suspended again. So, he came from home to write the paper. How can a child behave like that?” he quizzed.

In a video that received similar attention like the one on the President, Cobbinah rendered an apology to the President and his school.

He is among the fourteen students who were barred by the GES from writing the rest of the WASSCE papers in the schools.

Fortunately for Cobbinah, the same man he insulted has pleaded for clemency for him, urging GES to reconsider their decision.
