An unannounced inspection exercise was carried out by the teachers of the school and some devices including 200 mobile phones, laptops, ear pieces and chargers were seized. The seized items were immediately burnt.

The teachers’ action was justified by the fact that they had warned the students against bringing the mobile and electronic devices to school because they were not allowed.

The students on the other hand argued that the school did not have boarding facilities so they came to school with their devices to be able to communicate with the family members.

Some of the teachers have since abandoned the school for fear of being attacked by the peeved students.
