UPSA probes viral video of female student flogging junior colleague I Says culprits will face full rigor of sanctions
The University for Professional Studies Accra (UPSA) has begun investigating circumstances surrounding a video in which one of its senior students was captured whipping a junior student.
In the video which has gone viral on social media, a female senior student of the UPSA is captured flogging her junior colleague with a cane.
The junior colleague was heard screaming.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, 5 April 2023, reacting to the video, the UPSA revealed “an investigation committee has been set up by the University.”
“Our preliminary investigation has revealed that the culprit is in a special non-tertiary programme in preparation for an external professional examination,” the statement indicated.
The UPSA noted that: “Upon completion of the investigation, all responsible persons will face the full rigor of sanctions.
“The behaviour exhibited in the video goes against our Code and does a disservice to the majority of UPSA students who uphold the values of respect and professionalism for which UPSA is known.”
It added: “The University’s Code of Conduct, to which all students subscribe, remain the document that drives student behavioUr and conduct at UPSA. Students who violate the Code face disciplinary proceedings.”
