Akro Secondary Technical School in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region has been closed following the lynching of two Suspected Thieves on the school premises on Friday, 2022 which led to the death of one of the Suspects.
This is in consultation with the Eastern regional education directorate and Municipal security council to prevent the student's body from being attacked.
“Given the situation, a good number of the students have already left although we are yet to complete the academic year of 2021. We started with the examinations but under the current situation, it will not be safe to keep them so we have asked that they go back home so that if everything normalizes we come back safe and continue to finish the academic year” - GES.
According to the Headmaster of the school, the Suspected Thief who came after the first one was arrested threatened the students and that was why they beat him up.
“One thief came in the night and we managed to apprehend him. While we were keeping him for the police to come for him, another one emerged threatening the student that, if the other thief is not released, he will bring others from the town to beat them up. This infuriated the students and they beat him. We managed to rescue him. The police came in and took him to the hospital. Upon reaching there he was pronounced dead” - Headmaster.
