Students at the St. Monicaâ€™s College of Education in the Ashanti region were made to believe the controversial kissing of the three girls was just a â€œholy kissâ€ by the Priest Rev. Fr Obeng Larbi, that was an account by a third-year student( name withheld).
Speaking to Bonohene Baffour Awuah Tuesday, on Ghana Kasa on Kasapa 102.5 Fm, the student said the incident happened the last Sunday when the third-year students were preparing to leave campus for their teaching practice.
She claimed Father Obeng Larbi of the Anglican Church decided to reward devout Bible readers with the so-called â€œholy kissâ€ while others had received some packages including certificates.
â€œHe first kissed our chaplain and I must say he really swerved us with that spectacle because we really didnâ€™t see that coming and were unable to capture that on video. However, the subsequent ones were bible readers who were allegedly appreciated by Father with a holy kiss for their years of service in school as Bible readers.
â€œYou might have seen from the footage going round that the third girl who the Reverend Father kissed was actually a virgin and she deliberately masked up so that Father will just give her a peck but the Father resisted and forced her to remove the face mask for him to kiss her.â€
The video has generated wide condemnation on social media, although some have jumped to the Reverend fatherâ€™s defence.
Meanwhile, a statement by the Anglican church said the Church is saddened by the development, and investigations into the incident have started and appropriate sanctions will apply.
