Mawuli SHS Students Living In Fear

Students of Mawuli School in Ho are now living in fear following the incessant attacks on them by unidentified people from the Ho Township.

Two students and a teacher are reported to have been stabbed in the eye with few others nursing bruises and cutlass wounds in three different attacks since Thursday.

The attacks were said to have been prompted by the arrest and manhandling of a young man who on Wednesday allegedly stabbed a student and took his mobile phone at a place near the School.

On Thursday, a group of young men, said to be wielding cutlasses and other offensive objects, attacked some students of the School at the old Mawuli School Park, near Mawuko Girls Senior High School.

One of the victims of the attack told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that in course of the attack, a teacher of the School who attempted to separate the factions suffered a deep cut in the eye.

A young man said to be living with a teacher on the Mawuli School campus was also assaulted on Friday at a spot, close to the main gate of the School.

A day student was also said to have been stabbed in the eye on Saturday May 11, while in a taxi going to the school.

The School had been under heavy police presence since Friday but information available indicated that some young people in town were planning to launch another attack on the students before they (students) finished their final examinations.

It has become dangerous for students of the school to venture into town.

Some teachers and police officials confirmed the incidents but are tight-lipped and not willing to give further details.
