One Death Case Reported At Mamfe Methodist Girls’ Senior High School
Earlier this morning, the entire campus was seen to be flooded with smoke from burning refuse causing a very uncomfortable atmosphere for the students to bear.
A report given by Power FM states that about 20 students who could not withstand the intensity of the smoke fainted and had to be rushed to the nearby hospital for immediate care.
“My daughter called me this morning with tears and requested that I pick her up due to her condition and the smokiness of the school.” This was a statement given by the father when interviewed by Mugabe Maase of Power FM.
Unfortunately this evening, the headmistress has announced the sudden death of one girl and related it to the malaria fever she had yesterday.
As at now, report reaching Eghnews indicates the fuss going on in the school with parents trying to take their wards out of the school.
KNUST SHS Students Protest After Death of Colleague
Some students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Senior High School (KNUST SHS) on Tuesday evening held a protest against the school authorities following the death of a student.
According to the students, one of their colleagues who had an ulcer and was ill was not attended to adequately by the school authorities.
They believe the authorities feared he had contracted the novel coronavirus and as a result, did not attend to him for hours leading to his death.
The students then started demonstrating to register their displeasure with the school authorities.
During the protest, they vandalised the headmistress’ car.
It took the intervention of police personnel who were deployed to the school to help maintain calm.
One of the students recounted that “the senior housemaster told his [the deceased boy’s] friends to leave him alone. He told them to sanitise their hands and asked them why they were holding the boy and gave them a plot to weed [as punishment].”
The students also accused the headmistress of also not handling the situation with any urgency.
“The headmistress herself came to stand in front of this boy and the boy was rolling on the floor for more than four hours. They couldn’t call any car to take him to the hospital.”
Authorities of the school declined to speak to Citi News following the death.
A team of police personnel have been stationed on the school’s premises to maintain calm.
