The Police in Kojokrom near Sekondi in the Western Region has launched a manhunt for four students for allegedly shit-bombing the Kojokrom Anglican Junior High School.
The four – Emmanuel Essuman, Amos Aful, Isaac Ennin and John Nkrumah- who completed their basic education at the school in June, are said to have broke the entrance to the school compound and splashed faeces.
They again broke the lock to the teachers toilet and filled the toilet hole with blocks, Connect FM’s William Benjamin Peters reported.
He reported that it was an eyesore to see human excreta splashed on the floors of the school and stones dumped indiscriminately on the compound.
It is unclear what might have provoked the shit-bombing which the school authorities say has become more of an annual ritual. The school is shit-bombed any time junior high students complete their basic education.
According to the Kojokrom Electoral Area Assembly Member, Michael Arthur, he had information that the four suspects were planning to perpetuate such crime consequent to which he invited and warned them against that.
Mr Arthur said he was surprise to hear Wednesday morning that the school’s compound has been splashed with faecal matter.
The matter was reported to the Police and announcements have been made on local radio stations urging the suspects to report to the police while their parents have also been asked to produce them to assist in investigations.
Mr. Arthur told Onua FM Wednesday that he has vowed to stop the practice of shit-bombing at the school which has been happening for the past six years.
Headmaster of the school, Thomas Kweku Yeboah said the situation has earned the school the a bad tag , adding “we have vowed to erase the bad boy syndrome from the school”.
He claimed since assuming the headmaster position some few months ago, the number of ‘bad boys’ in the school has reduced.
Mr Yeboah said he would involve the assembly, the traditional rulers and the parent teacher association to talk to the parents for them to advise their children against bad behaviour.
Mary Yankey, mother of Emmanuel Essuman, who visited the school after hearing the radio announcement, said her child initially denied knowledge of the act but later confessed.
According to madam Yankey, Essuman’s bad behaviour is to be blamed on peer pressure.
