A teacher at the Agyei Kwadwo JHS, Emmanuel Adu in the Ashanti Region has been severely assaulted by angry community members after he canned a female student called Pokuwaa for being disrespectful.
Emmanuel Adu who teaches both Mathematics and Information Communication Technology (ICT) at the basic school is reported to have secured several injuries in the cause of the beating.
It all happened when the teacher, during class hours spotted Pokuaa playing. Pokuwaa then insulted Emmanuel Adu (the teacher) after he adviced her to be attentive in class. The disrespectful behaviour of Pokuwaa then saw the teacher caned her as part of instilling discipline in her.
Hours after that reports indicate a mob from the Agyarko – Buoho community and other three neighbours namely; Atrama, (where the girl comes from), Ampabame and Brofoyeduru, led by four persons including Pokuaa, armed with iron rods, cutlasses, sticks and stones, besieged the school compound, headed straight up to Pokuwaa's classroom beating and assaulting Mr Adu mercilessly.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Commander of Police (DSP) Ebenezer Benson, has confirmed the incident and thus promised to launch an investigation into the beating.
