In a statement issued on Thursday 19 August 2021, Rev Fr Larbi acknowledged his conduct was incorrect and asked for clemency.
“I pray for forgiveness from all and sundry and plead that you hold me in your prayers during this trying times. May God bless us all, I seemed to have taken a number of things for granted. I did not think my behaviour through,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, the Anglican Church, Ghana has set up a five-member committee to investigate the basis and legitimacy of his act.
The committee has officially begun its work and is expected to submit its findings and recommendations to the Anglican Church and the school authorities on 31 August 2021.
