ACP Akomeah added that the police officer suffered head injuries and has been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The students also vandalised vehicles belonging to the Police Service.
This incident started when a group of teachers reported to the headmistress that some final year students of Atebubu SHS have bribed some other teachers in the school to help them pass the final West African Senior High School Exams.

The Headmistress then seized the monies and vowed to punish the students.
The students involved in the scandal got angry by the development and started vandalising school properties. The police were invited to help restore calm.
