Assembly Member for the area, Isreal Bossman, narrated the incident to Citi News.

“The teacher saw the final year student bullying a form one student. So the teacher tried to stop the bullying. But the boy wouldn’t listen, so he decided to use the cane on the student. But the student got furious and rushed to go for a stone. The teacher sensing danger tried to overpower the student, and he left.”

“But when the teacher was moving back to the classroom, little did he know that the student was holding a sharp object he had for practical lessons. So the student pounced on the teacher and tried stabbing the teacher in the stomach, but ended up cutting the teacher in the arm. Some other students intervened and managed to take the object from their colleague. The student then took to his heels”, he added.

“So currently, teachers in the school have laid down their tools. According to them, they will not be teaching until justice is served. The school is calm, although the teachers are peeved because they say, this has been happening for some time now. They say hooliganism on campus is on the increase, and they are scared, so they are not going back to the classroom anytime soon.”
