“According to them, several complaints lodged by the leadership of the school with the circuit supervisor and other senior officers of GES have not been acted upon, with the excuse that the issue is beyond their capacity” The Finder reported.
It would be recalled that Khamil has been at the centre of controversy over the alleged leaked Tamale sex tapes which have received series of Â condemnation from various stakeholders, including religious leaders, who in their sermons have likened his character or behaviour to a child from a dysfunctional home who has not had good parental upbringing.
The religious leaders noted that his behaviour has not only brought the name of his family into disrepute, but that of the whole community.
The ladies in the leaked tapes arc mostly nurses, university graduates and students.
Most of them are from respectable families and have had to leave town because of the psychological trauma they had to go through.
