Seventeen suspects are in the grips of the Nima Police Command over their alleged involvement in the attack of teaches of the St. John’s 1 and 2 Primary School a few weeks ago.
According to the Nima Police Commander, ACP Nuhu Jango, there will be a screening process Monday to “identify the perpetrators.”
He has given the assurance that his outfit is embarking on a series of security measures to mitigate crime in the area.
The St. John’s 1 and 2 Primary and Junior High School in Accra New Town was shut down after cane and knife-wielding thugs attacked and brutalised teachers for punishing one of the students.
Students had to run helter-skelter for their lives as the heavily built men went berserk battering anyone on sight.
According to the teacher responsible for the pupil in question, the student after being freed from her punishment for misbehaving in class, run home and returned in the company of the bulky men, suspected to be her brothers, who then unleashed terror on the teachers.
Several of the teachers and residents who attempted to intervene were injured in the incident and were later treated in a near-by hospital.
The student in questioned denied knowing the thugs.
