Following a violent attack on teachers by outraged teenagers, the Odumase basic school in the Obuasi East district of the Ashanti region has been shut down.
The attack took place on Friday morning after some Junior High School (JHS) students allegedly received suspensions for playing during class.
Adom News’ Isaac K. Normanyo was informed by some students that their classmates rejected requests to enter the classrooms and kept playing with mangoes. When the teacher noticed them, she disciplined the students for breaking the rules.
However, it was claimed that after reporting the incident to their families at home, the students returned to the school to attack the teacher with clubs and cutlasses.
They allegedly cut a nearby woman with a cutlass during the attack at the school and came dangerously close to lynching a pregnant female teacher.
The school has been shuttered as a result of the violent attack, according to Kwabena Owusu Nketia, the Obuasi East district director of education, who confirmed the occurrence. He stated that the police had been notified of the incident.
In the meantime, Faustina Amissah, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Obuasi East, denounced the occurrence. She requested the community’s assistance in locating the offenders so that the police could arrest them. Ms. Amissah gave the suspects her word that they would face the full force of the law in order to serve as a warning to others.
