Four Somé Senior High School officials remanded

The Circuit Court at Tokor has remanded four employees of the Somé Senior High School in the Ketu South Municipality into police detention.

The four entered a not guilty plea to the accusations of stealing brought against them. On Monday, May 27, the bursar, the matron, the assistant headmistress in charge of academics, and the storekeeper were all charged with taking food products intended for students.

Since then, the Matron, the Storekeeper, and the Bursar have all been suspended by the Ghana Education Service, which has also formed a committee to look into the situation within the next two weeks.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has suspended the officials, Alex Obuadi (storekeeper), Yorm Dzikumu (matrons), and Richard Ametorxe (bursar), effective immediately.

On Friday, May 24, in the evening, while the bursar and matron were leaving the school, a group of alumni and the assembly member performed a search that set off the investigation.

Among the possessions of the Matron that were discovered during the search were food items such as tin tomatoes, mackerel, cleaning supplies, and pesticide spray.
