Teachers in Dzodze-Penyi Senior High School located in the Ketu North constituency of the Volta Region grant permission to students to go out of the school premises despite COVID-19 protocols put in place.

This action of the teachers goes against the protocols laid down by the Ghana Education Service which restricts students from going out of their school campuses once they have checked in from home.

An observation made by YEN.com.gh's reporter who visited the Ketu North District during the week revealed that students of Dzosec go home anytime as they are often permitted by some rogue teachers of the school.

A female student whom the reporter met a few meters from the school told the reporter in a chat that she was going home for something she refused to name.

When asked if she was aware that they [students] are not to go out of school premises once they arrived for academic works; the student answered and said she asked permission which was granted by a teacher.

The reporter met another student who was in a hurry to catch a motor rider to take him home.

During interrogations, the student revealed that he asked permission and was allowed to go home but report back on time.

However, both students refused to name the particular teachers who granted them permission to go home.

YEN.com.gh reporter's effort to get to the school's premises to speak to authorities of the school failed as he was denied entry by security personnel manning the main entrance.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the mother of Theophilus Tagoe, famed as Castro who went missing some years ago, has spoken in a recent interview following claims that she was poor and dejected.

While speaking in a radio interview on Onua FM, Castro's mother said claims made by Lawyer Maurice Ampaw to the effect that she was now dejected and poor following her son's disappearance, were false.
