According to a report by 3news, the victim, Mohammed Abdul Rauf, was suspended together with three of his colleagues in November for skipping classes and going to smoke substances suspected to be Indian hemp.

However, the four students defied the suspension to attend the school’s entertainment one Saturday.

Their recalcitrance prompted some of their colleagues to report the issue to the teacher, Sulemana Osman.

“He came from the house with the gun and when he came he didn’t even meet them on campus so he followed them and shot my brother,” a brother to the victim is quoted as saying.

According to him, although the issue has been reported to the Police, his brother’s situation has worsened because they don’t have money to treat him.

“When we reported the issue to the police, they gave us a medical form and we went to Salaga government hospital. My brother has since been referred to Tamale and we are looking for money to go,” he said.

Reports suggest the four students were suspended after they were found to have skipped classes to go and smoke Indian hemp.

The under fire teacher is reported to have confronted them on why they visited the school premises when they had been suspended.

This reportedly generated a misunderstanding, which ended with the teacher drawing his gun to shoot at the student.
