The headmaster of Apostle Safo Senior High School, Nana Asante, says the school does not abuse its students by locking them up indiscriminately.
Earlier reports reaching YEN.com.gh revealed that the movements of students were being restricted, usually at specified hours in a day.
The report also stated that the dormitories for the female students are usually locked with padlocks, in order to prevent movement in or out.
This action is allegedly perpetrated by a house mistress, Verah Amissah, who reportedly does not want students to wake up at dawn to prepare for class..
She is said to impose the curfew between 9:45pm and 5:00am every day.
Headmaster Nana Asante, however, told YEN.com.gh that senior high schools all over the country observe unique time periods such as prep hours and “lights outs”, hence there was nothing strange going on there.
He further stated that under no condition would the school authorities knowingly keep students under a form of bondage.
He added that the reports inhumane conditions in the school was simply a fabrication, and should therefore be treated with contempt.
