Teachers and Pupils of Nkrukan Presbyterian Basic School in the Yilo Krobo District of the Eastern region were gripped with fear on the morning of Monday, November 6, 2018 after seeing a juju pot and calabash planted in the school.
According to a photos and reports, the red and black decorated pots with schnapps, eggs and some unknown items were planted in front of the Kindergarten block of the school.
Teachers and pupils were unable to enter their classroom out of fear of being hit by the black magic thereby making them stranded.
The 'juju' as is known in local parlance, is believed to have been planted by a man fighting the school over a parcel of land which he was claiming ownership of.
According to teachers, Monday’s incident was the third time something like that had happened.
They added that the suspect had also been threatening them with death. School authorities also alleged that the KG classrooms were mostly 'bombed' with feces by unknown persons.
A School Management Committee is however holding a meeting on the matter while a report has already been lodged at the Police station.
The PTA Chairman, Samuel Tei Wayo told in an interview with Starr News said that, “the person who committed the act went to an information center Sunday warning that everybody must desist from the School land so we know him, we are going to cause his arrest but for the meantime, the KG pupil will merge with other classes.”
Some parents stormed the School to withdraw their children as the school management sought permission from the Ghana Education Service (GES) to temporarily close down the school.
However, Evelyn Asieni Teiko, Assembly Member for the Area, has allayed fears of parents and assured them that that everything was under control.
She stated that, nobody could claim ownership of the school land allocated by traditional rulers 70 years ago.
