Accra-based Starr FM reports that a mobile phone was detected in the bag of the student whiles a mock exams was ongoing.

The phone was subsequently seized by teachers as it is against school rules to possess such a gadget and especially during exams hours.

However, Asare got agitated and left the classroom without even completing the exams. He later returned with a friend, who aided him in forcibly trying to retrieve the phone from the headmaster.

The pair lured the headmaster into his office under the pretense of dialoguing, however, Asare quickly pulled out a knife and threatened to stab the headmaster if he did not return the phone which was seized.

Upon realizing the headmaster would not give in, his accomplice also pulled out a gun to also threaten the headmaster.
