Headmaster of the school, Kwesi Hezekiah narrating the story to Accra-based Adom FM said, Richard Larbie, the deceased after the class teacher has given the students the exercise, teased that there would certainly be one of his classmates who would score zero in the exercise.

The 'prophecy' of the deceased came to pass when James Adjei scored zero after the marking.

"Incidentally, after the teacher marked the exercise, the offender scored zero, the deceased then repeated his statement that he knew someone would score zero and that has come to pass…the offender was therefore offended, picked a drawing board and hit the deceased in his left rib," the headmaster said.
