Rev. Fr Baltharzzar Obeng Larbi, the Anglican priest who was captured for kissing female students at the St. Monica’s College of Education has begged for forgiveness.
He rendered an apology in a statement Newshuntermag.com has seen.
According to him, “even in the absence of COVID-19” he should have known better.
“I seemed to have taken a number of things for granted. I did not think my behaviour through.”
“I pray for forgiveness from all and sundry and plead that you hold me in your prayers during these trying times. May God bless us all,” he added.
“This unfortunate incident happened during a Church Service in appreciation of the Level 300 students, who would be going for their Macro Teaching (Off-Campus Teaching Practice) when College resumed the next academic year, by the College’s Chaplaincy Board. The three students seen in the video performed extraordinarily well and were therefore called to be appreciated by the Chaplain. An attempt to add a human touch resulted in the scene in the video,” Rev. Father Larbi explained.
His statement comes after he was relieved of his duties a few days ago.
