About 70 students from the Premier Remedial School in Koforidua Zongo who were not allowed to take part in the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), have gone on a rampage and destroyed school properties.
The angry students stormed the school premises and shit-bombed the teachers' office protesting their inability to write the BECE.
70 out of the 115 students of the Premier Remedial School were on Monday turned away from the Akyem Kwarbeng Senior High School Exams center in the Atiwa District because their registrations were not successful after they had paid about GH¢1,000 of various fees including the BECE registration Fees.
The situation angered the affected students and some parents who trooped to the center to cause a commotion on Monday.
It took the intervention of the Police to calm nerves by arresting two teachers of Premier Remedial School identified as Moro and Lord.
The Education Director of Atiwa District identified as Mr. Ampofo is also assisting in investigations as he was accused of receiving the registration fees of the affected students.
The case has since been transferred to the Eastern Regional Police Headquarters where the Atiwa District Director of Education has been asked to refund the registration fees of the affected students totaling about GH¢6,900.
However, the students who are still furious about the matter went on a rampage to destroy properties of the school including registers, receipt books, destroyed desks, smashed windows and shit-bombed the teachers' office.
