The Ghana Education Service (GES) has taken immediate action following the emergence of a disturbing video showing an act of violence involving two students of Adisadel College.
The video, which has been circulating on social media, has sparked outrage and raised concerns about the safety of students within the country’s educational institutions.
According to a statement signed by the Head of the Public Relations Unit, Cassandra Twum Ampofo, GES is deeply concerned and strongly condemns the barbaric act by the culprits.
“We applaud the school authorities for taking swift action to suspend the culprit pending further investigation,” parts of the release read.
The GES views acts of violence in schools as utterly unacceptable and detrimental to the overall well-being of students, thus, is resolute in its commitment to maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for all students across the nation.
Meanwhile, in response to the incident, the school’s authorities have suspended the alleged perpetrator pending further investigation.
While the GES applauds the swift disciplinary measures, it has directed the Regional Director of Education to collaborate closely with both the school authorities and the relevant law enforcement agency.
This coordinated effort seeks to uncover the truth behind the incident and administer appropriate measures in line with the law.
The Service further reaffirmed its commitment to fostering an environment where every student can learn and grow without fear of violence or intimidation.
