Theft robbery

Three OWASS students were arrested for armed robbery.

On Thursday, August 11, Kumasi Central police detained three students, Akwasi Adu Donkor, Raphael Owusu Appiah, and Kwadwo Osei Asubonteng, for assaulting a taxi driver and stealing his cab at gunpoint.

On Friday morning, police notified the school administration, and it was determined that the suspects were indeed Opoku Ware School students.

According to records, the three suspects were removed from the boarding house, the school said in a statement on Tuesday, August 16.

In the statement signed by Bismark Agyemang Duah, the secretary to the school's disciplinary committee, these children were accused of a number of offenses.

On the same day, Akwasi Adu Donkor and Asubonteng Osei Kwadwo were ejected from the boarding home for the following offenses: breaking school bounds, inappropriately dressing inside, and fighting inside.

Furthermore, Owusu Appiah Raphael was expelled from the boarding house for stealing from his roommates on multiple occasions. Following this incident, he and four other students were charged at TUC with breaking into someone's home without permission. He has continued to hide in the dormitory despite leaving the boarding house.

According to the school administration, all attempts to change these children have failed.In addition, school authorities have on numerous occasions discussed the notorious behaviour of the students to their parents.

It is so sadden to note that Raphael Owusu Appiah's father ridiculed and almost physically assaulted Mr. Akwasi Oduro Boateng, the assistant headmaster. He claimed that the assistant headmaster despised his son and his only objective is getting him out of the boarding house.

Although school authorities are upset about the incident, they reiterated that these boys ignored all advice given to them.In a final statement they declared that:

"We want to be clear that the boys are our students, but at the time of the incident, they had already finished school and were in the care of their parents."
