Examinations have been postponed at the Islamic Senior School in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region following the shooting incident that occurred on Monday June 13.
TV3’s Ashanti Region correspondent Ibrahim Abubakar reported on Tuesday June 14 that this is to enable engineers from the Department of Urban roads construct speed rumps in front of the school.
It comes a day after disturbances there left at least 30 students injured after police fired into a crowd of them on demonstration.
A temporary rumble strip has been put in front of the school, an area which has a bone of contention for the students over persistent knockdowns, Ibrahim further reported.
The Police have announced that the Deputy Regional Commander in the Ashanti Region, DCOP Kwesi Akomea Apraku has been removed following the shooting incident.
This comes after the Inspector General of Police Dr George Akuffo Dampre led a team to the area to assess the situation.
Portions of a statement issued by the Police after the IGP’s visit said “It was further established that even though nobody was hit by a bullet the Police handling of the incident was poor and fell short of our standard operating procedure on crowd control.

Two other officers, ACP Mr George Ankomah, the Regional Operations Officer and ACP Mr Alex Cudjoe Acquah, the Suame Divisional Police Commander have also been interdicted to make way for a thorough investigations into the matter.”
