DREADKOCKS SAGA: COURT ORDERS ACHIMOTA SCH TO RESPOND TO SUIT IN 5 WORKING DAYS



By Jerry Akornor 

An Accra high court has ordered Achimota School to file response to a suit filed by disgruntled students who were denied admission over refusal to remove their dreadlocks. 

The two Ohenaba Nkrabea and Tyrone Murgh were requested to remove their dreadlocks or be denied admission in accordance with Achimota School rules of engagement.  These two students, who felt their human rights were under severe attack by the Achimota School’s tall orders, dragged Achimota School to court to seek justice.

 

During proceedings today, the presiding judge instructed lawyers for Achimota to file response to the substantive suit in five working days. This was after the lawyers for Achimota School pleaded with the court to allow more time to file their response to the suit. 

But in a sharp rebuttal, Counsel for the affected students Wayoe Ghanamannti said “granting the defence lawyers additional five working days to response is a deliberate attempt to delay the case”.

But speaking to journalists after court proceedings, father of one of the affected student Rosward Nkrabea said “we’ll look at what the court system is all about. We have just started the battle”. 

The case has been adjourned to May 14, 2021 for both sides to reappear in court.
