WATCH: KUKURANTUMI: Invigilators, Journalist Escapes Death After Final Year Students Pounce On Them
Two Invigilators and a Journalist at the Bright Senior High School (SHS) in Akyem Kukurantumi in the Eastern Region have received the beatings of their lives after some final year students dealt with them mercilessly over an alleged intimidation and strict invigilation in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
According to sources, the students claim the Invigilators were being too hard on them hence their actions.
The unfortunate incident has gotten social media buzzing as some users say they wrote their West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) under far worse conditions than the current crop of students.
ThinkNews Online has gathered aside the invigilators, a journalist with the state-owned Daily Graphic was also beaten by the students.
Further checks indicates his phone and bag were ceased by the students after they gave him a hot chase on a motorbike.
Sources say the angry students destroyed the mobile phones belonging to the invigilators.
It took the intervention of the Kukurantumi police to calm tempers.
It is however emerging that students in Kukurantumi, Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School, Juaben Senior High School, Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical School have all registered their displeasure over strict invigilation, difficulty of questions and the social distancing.
Some students who spoke to the media on anonymity said "We are disappointed that none of the government-procured past questions we focused on, featured in the papers we have written so far"
In other developments, Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Mr Anthony Boateng says students who perpetuated the acts will be dealt with drastically.
It will be recalled that the Ghana Education Service (GES), in November 2019 procured 400,000 sets of questions and answer booklets from the West African Examination Council (WAEC), which was distributed to the beneficiaries of the Free Senior High School programme.
