About 20 students of the Nungua Senior High School in Accra have been taken to the LEKMA Hospital for treatment on Tuesday morning.
The students reportedly collapsed in school on Tuesday (July 3, 2018).
A Physician Specialist at the hospital Dr. Joseph Oliver Commey told Accra-based Citi FM that some of the students said they were seeing ghosts.
“They rushed to the emergency room with some behaving abnormally. But we found out that most of them were suffering from hysteria. They said they had seen things, some seeing ghosts, some seeing other students who are dead.”
“We can’t work with that as clinicians so we have managed them. They are currently very stable and they are waiting to see the clinical psychologist. We’ve seen close to 18 students, and we are observing 3 others. By the end of the day, we’ll hand them over to the school authorities who are still here,” he added.
Meanwhile, school authorities who accompanied the students to the hospital have declined to comment on the matter.
