According to the District Director of Education, Sabina Otoo, the incident happened on Friday night when a male believed to be from the town went to the school campus and entered a classroom during prep hours.
The said male is said to have requested to sit near one of the female students for a conversation.
She said after some time one of the male students who was also learning in the classroom asked the “intruder” to leave as he was disturbing the class.
She said angered by that, the “intruder” went into a nearby bush and brought several others and wielding offensive objects attacked the male student who had asked him to leave.
She said in solidarity with the student the other students joined in the fight.
She said in the ensuing “free-for-all fight” the students managed to overpower two of intruders and handed them over to the school’s security.
However, one managed to escape but the other was handed over to the police.
A different account of the incident picked by Graphic Online also indicated that one of the male students who is in form three and on vacation had come to the school to pick up his supposed girlfriend for a date. The girl is a boarding student.
This, according to an eye witness did not go down well with some of the male boarding students in the school who made efforts to prevent the two from leaving the campus.
The two however managed to leave.
Upon their return to the campus in the evening the source said some of the male boarding students confronted the day student, ceased his mobile phone and some of his belongings.
