BANTAMA CONSTITUENCY YOUTH-NDC CONDEMNS MILITARY AND POLICE BRUTALITIES IN KUMASI GIRLS SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
We write to condemn unequivocally the Military and Police brutalities unleashed on students of Kumasi Girls Senior High School.
Whilst Ghanaians are still battling with the shadows of Ejura and Wa Military brutalities
Some Military and Police personnel stormed the dormitories of the campuses of Kumasi Girls Senior High School within Bantama Sub metropolitan area/Bantama Constituency when they were allegedly called in by the headmistress to curb an ongoing agitation.
The entire students of Kumasi Girls Senior High School on Monday 19 July 2021at around 9-10 pm agitated over starving on campus and pleaded with the school authorities to allow them to go home during the holidays.
The School authorities denied releasing them to go home to get themselves some food and provisions which lead to the agitations.
Upon our interrogations and investigations, we again realized that it is that the brutalities did not only happened on the campuses of Kumasi Girls Senior High School but also students of St.Louis Senior High School and Serwaa Nyarko Senior High School also had similar Maltreatment of the Police and Military brutalities.
The Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff have been tight lip on the issue and cautioned against voicing on the said matter especially the shortage or inadequate food to be prepared for the students.
The government supply of food has not been forthcoming regularly.
We are calling on The President of the Republic of Ghana H.E Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo, The Member of Parliament Bantama Constituency Hon. Asenso Boakye whose jurisdiction Kumasi Girls Senior High School can be found, The Ashanti Regional Director of Education, and The Kumasi Metropolitan Director of Education to probe the said brutalities and bring the said Military and Police who perpetrated the act to book.
21st July 2021.
