Public schools within the Ledzorkuku Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) have all been shut down temporarily, to make way for police investigations after some pupils reportedly assaulted a teacher.
According to some pupils of the affected schools, they were asked to return home when they reported Tuesday, February, 23, 2021, and Wednesday by officials.
This comes after a Junior High School pupil allegedly ganged up with his friends to assault a teacher, who punished him for not submitting an assignment resulting in the teacher getting injured in the eye.
A teacher (name withheld) affirmed this.
“This happened on Monday so the police have ordered the closure of schools within the area so as to make way for investigations,” she stated.
She added that the affected teacher, a close ally of hers sustained injuries on the forehead, nose, and eyes.
School children are seen loitering about the major streets of the Ledzorkuku municipality.
The Kpeshie Divisional Police Service has, however, launched a manhunt for the suspected criminals who are currently on the run.
