Over 100 parents stormed the Kumasi Academy Senior High School after some of their wards called to inform them about a food poisoning incident.

Students of the school demonstrated on Friday evening to seek answers from authorities on the mysterious death of three of their colleagues.

Three students of the school are said to have died within a period of ten days.

According to information gathered by police, the three students who were granted permission to go home for treatment after they complained of sickness died while at home.

Another student however fell sick on Friday and the his colleagues were suspecting similar incident and decided to go on a protest.

They vandalized school buses and other properties in the process and attempted to attack the assistant headteacher of the school.

The parents who were called in by their wards were not allowed to enter as the security of the school blocked the entrances.

Officers from the Asokore Mampong and Manhyia Divisional Police Commands were called in for reinforcement.

Assistant Head Teacher in charge of Academics, Ernest Wiafe tells Kapital News’ Hafiz Tijani that calm has returned to the school.

He said, “the students were agitated after supper when they heard rumours another student had passed on”.

He said one first year student and two second year students had passed away in the past days but they “did not die in the school here. These are students who fell sick, reported at the sick bay, they were given first aid, the nurses sort the permission of their respective house heads, they went home, they were taken to hospital but unfortunately passed on at those health facilities”.

Police have meanwhile begun investigations into the incident.

Meanwhile more than ten of the sick students are receiving treatment at the Garden City and Manhyia hospitals.
