The decision was taken by the disciplinary committee of the SHS after the two students, suspected of practicing the illegal act, were also accused of introducing other students to the practice.
The Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Emmanuel Asiedu Acheampong, confirmed the incident to The Ghanaian Times in a telephone interview.
“There was an internal issue like that and the school board had also discussed something like that, but as to whether they have been suspended, I don’t have any idea”, he said.
Meanwhile, when The Ghanaian Times went to the headmistress of the SHs, Benedicta Foli, to ascertain the truth or otherwise of the case, she declined to comment on the matter.
She said that ‘whatever happens in the school remains in the school, and does not go out, so don’t waste your time to ask me any question because I won’t answer” she said.
