The key witness in the case of the GHANASS matron who diverted food items, Kofi Kanjagan, has disclosed how he caught the suspect in the act.
The suspect, Comfort Oduro Bruce, a matron at the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASS) in Koforidua, was allegedly caught by the security man, as she attempted to divert some food items meant for the students.
The security man, Kofi Kanjagan, sought to stop her, as she sought to leave the school in a Ghana Education Service (GES) vehicle driven by her accomplice, Alfred Kumah.
She however ordered Alfred to drive through the gates with speed.
Providing details on how he detected she was the culprit, he stated that he received information to the effect that she had been constantly diverting food items.
He therefore mounted a surveillance in order to confirm the information he had received.
He went on to say that on 16th November 2017, he accosted the matron and the driver at the gates, and consequently reported them to the headmaster, Very Rev. Abraham Osei Donkor.
The headmaster then formed a committee to investigate the matter.
The suspects were granted bail by a Circuit Court to the tune of GHc30,000 each with two sureties.
Comfort and Alfred however pleaded not guilty to the charges of stealing and abetment of crime respectively.
The case has been adjourned to 16th January 2018 so that the counsel of the suspects can cross examine the witness.
