Meanwhile, the Atiwa District Education Director Mr. Ampofo is assisting in investigating the incident after he was accused of receiving the registration fees of the affected students.

In a related development, some residents who live near the school have called on the Ghana Education Service to close down the school over the misconduct of some of its teachers.

“For me, I have been fighting the so-called teachers here, they smoke wee on campus, the inhumanely maltreat the students in the name of punishment. Even students are made to buy cement if they absent themselves. If you absent yourself for a day, you buy one bag of cement, two days two bags of cement, GES must shut down this so-called remedial school,” a resident said.
