Saboba: Headmaster of pupils who drowned in River Oti remanded into prison custody

The 43-year-old headteacher of the St Charles Lwanga R/C JHS in Saboba has been charged with manslaughter

A Tamale District Court on Monday, 15 November 2021, remanded Jashain Emmanuel, Headteacher of the nine Junior High School (JHS) pupils who drowned in the Oti River, into Prison Custody.

The 43-year-old headteacher of the St Charles Lwanga R/C JHS in Saboba, has been charged with manslaughter.

Lawyer for the accused prayed the court to grant the headteacher bail, since he turned himself in to the Police.

He indicated that the accused, therefore, had no intentions of jumping bail if granted.

The court, however, declined him bail, remanding him into Police custody.

The headteacher is expected to reappear in court on Monday, 29 November 2021.

He was arrested by the Saboba Police in the Northern Region when he turned himself in.

The Headteacher, is alleged to have sent some 31 pupils of the school to harvest rice from his farm when the incident occurred.

The boat capsized.

There were about 30 pupils on the boat returning from the headteacher’s rice farm when the accident happened.

Some 20 of them swam ashore.
