According to the report, the students lure the girls who usually come from poor homes with money and gifts. Some students give the young girls GHc 1 and/or recharge cards in exchange for sex.

The report states that a student could impregnate as many as 4 girls between the ages of 13-16 years in the aforementioned areas.

NASPA is therefore, calling for stiff punishments for students who are caught in the act destroying the future of these teens by impregnating them.
