Tamale School Closed Down – Daily Guide Africa

The Tamale Dabokpa Technical Institute in the Northern Region has been closed down by school authorities.

The school authorities ordered the entire student body to vacate the school premises by 3pm Wednesday for causing tension in the school.

When DAILY GUIDE visited the school, the entire school had turned into a ghost campus with just a few students around packing.

Information gathered indicated that the final year students who were about handing over to the second year students decided to do the normal students tradition of scattering the dining hall by taking over the food served.

The situation did not go down well with a teacher at the school so he decided to stop the final year students and it resulted in the throwing of stones, bowls and other objects at the teacher and in the process he got injured.

The situation which got out of hand scared the school authorities who then called on the Tamale Police Command for protection.

A second year student who spoke to DAILY GUIDE on condition of anonymity said he was from Kintampo North and the closing down of the school was going to affect him deeply.

Police personnel on the ground who spoke on condition of anonymity said they received a call that there was a misunderstanding at the school which resulted in the throwing of stones so they quickly rushed to the campus.

According to him, when they got to the campus, they realized that dining bowls were scattered outside the dining hall.

He indicated that they would remain on the campus to ensure that no further destructions or damages were done to the school properties.

When DAILY GUIDE contacted the school principal about the situation, he declined commenting on the matter.
