The incident got the attention of the Abuakwa North Municipal Directorate of Education, and a decision was taken to shut down the school for the time being.

Abena Gyamerah, the municipal director of GES, visited the school on Thursday, July 28, 2022, to meet the teachers over the incident.

“The students misbehaved and the teachers tried to correct them but they went to inform the town folks so it was the town folks who threatened the teachers. So I gave instruction that the school be closed down today so that we sit on the issue. It is still under investigation,” she said in an interview with Starr news.
