Teachers in Zabzugu Senior High School in the Zabzugu District in Ghana, have vowed not to supervise any more examinations unless security is provided them, after invigilators and teachers were pelted with stones and attacked with dangerous weapons.

The attack was instigated by the fact that, the final year students were not allowed to cheat in their final year examination.

According to Adomonline, the angry students vandalised school properties such as television sets, windows, doors etc. According to the students, it was their right to copy or send texts books into the examination hall.

A student who did not want his name mentioned said, “Even though they did not have any pact with their teachers to allow them to cheat, they were reliably informed that teachers from other schools aid their students by allowing them to copy.”

A terrified teacher of the school while confirming the attack said the only crime they (teachers) committed was not allowing the students to copy during the West Africa Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination. He added that he was only alive because he didn’t take refuge in his house because the students went to his house with stones.

He said, “The students felt they had a right to send their notebooks and textbooks to the examination hall, a right they the teachers are yet to come across in any of the examination regulations.

“As a result, the students mobilized themselves and stormed the school, vandalizing properties and threatening to kill any teacher they came across.”

However, Honorable Iddi Ahmed, the District Chief Executive of Zabzugu, has called on authorities to ensure that the problem between the students and the teachers is resolved.
