JHS Closed Down After Man Stormed School With Machete To ‘Butcher’ Teacher

The teachers at Kodjonya Millennium Presbyterian Junior High School in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality in the Eastern region have boycotted classes after a cutlass-wielding young man invaded the school in an attempt to ‘butcher’ a teacher.

The school has been temporarily closed down after the incident on Wednesday, August 11.

Reports by Accra-based Starr FM stated that the teacher’s National service personnel rebuked a form one JHS student in class over misconduct.

The student who had signed a bond of good behavior with three others for previous misconduct informed his brother that the teacher scolded him.

The brother of the student then stormed into the class while the teacher was teaching without permission. He went to sit beside his junior brother staring at the teacher.

The teacher asked him to go out but he refused, forcing the teacher to walk out of the classroom and the young man also stormed out of the classroom and went to pull a machete from his house to hack the teacher.

The teachers upon noticing danger closed down the school indefinitely and left for their homes.

The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), School Management Committee, and the chiefs and elders in the community together with police mounted pressure on the parents of the suspect to produce him to the Odumase police command.

Police Commander Superintendent Doris Hutikpor said the student and his brother are currently in Police custody pending investigations.
