The Social Studies teacher who has been accused of sodomy is an elder at the Church of Pentecost.
This was made known to 3news by one of the teachers at the Kulpi Junior High School, Nyaaba Veronica.
“[Natomah] Otabel is somebody that even if someone had told me that he has even slept with a lady, I wouldn’t have believed because ever since I have been here in the same quarters with him for the past four years, I have never seen him with a lady before,” Madam Nyaaba Veronica said.
“And he is also a Pentecost Elder and he prays a lot. It was difficult [for me].”
She said the shock makes her live in denial about the news.
The suspect has been accused of sodomising 19 pupils of the school and was picked up on Monday, September 27 after the East Gonja Directorate of Education formally reported the matter to the Salaga District Police Command of the Ghana Police Service.
He has been remanded into police custody and set to reappear before court on October 13.
