At least two Police officers are injured after a violent protest by students of Zabzugu Senior High School in the Northern Region.
The students were reportedly protesting against a ban on the wearing of unapproved uniform. XYZ News has learnt the students targeted some of their teachers who had no option than to flee the school.
The incident Tuesday night, took the teachers by surprise though they were aware of the agitation against the enforcement of the regulation.
According to sources, the students involved were final year students mostly boys who reportedly pelted the Police with stones when they were called in.
XYZ News is picking reports that the students were prevented from engaging in examination malpractices in the ongoing West Africa Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
One of the teachers openly said the students felt they had a right to send their notebooks and text books to the examination hall, but when the authorities stopped them the students eventually mobilized themselves and stormed the school, vandalizing properties and threatening to kill any teacher they came across.
The Police however managed to secure premises of the headmistress and her property from being vandalized.
Northern regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Yussif Tanko who confirmed this to XYZ News says there is still heavy Police presence in the school to prevent any further attacks.
Meanwhile, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Zabzugu, Mr Iddi Ahmed has called on authorities to ensure the problem between the students and the teachers is resolved.
