Five students of the Konongo Odumase Senior High School, KOSS, in the Ashanti Region have been arrested in connection with the stabbing of a student in the school.
The commander at the Konongo district police station, DSP Osei Adu Agyemang, said “These five suspects who are all in Form 2, ganged up and decided to go to House Three and then bully the first years. They first attacked and assaulted some of them. They further moved to the mini market on campus and grabbed another first year student and attempted to drag him away to molest him but he was rescued,” the commander said.
“This action infuriated Emmanuel Osei Frimpong [the key suspect] who went and attacked a first year student but was stopped by the deceased. Feeling angry, the suspect pulled out a small kitchen knife and stabbed the deceased without any provocation,” DSP Agyemang said.
