The Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Kwame Acheampong, has revealed that the Criminal Investigation Department has commenced investigations into the death of a student at Aburi Girls’ Senior High School on Sunday.
He explained that the investigation by the CID is in tandem with the Ghana Education Service line of action, which has become necessary due to the circumstances leading to the death of the female student.
The female student is said to have died on Sunday after alleged delay and negligence on the part of school supervisors.
Parents of the victim are demanding an independent probe into the matter.
Sector Minister and the Regional Education Director won’t comment on the matter until investigation ends.
Meanwhile, 3news.com has chanced upon a memo from the Parent Teacher Association Secretariat which has re-scheduled a PTA meeting that was to take place on February 10, 2024, to February 17,2024.
It would be recalled that the family of a 16-year-old student of Aburi Girls Senior High School who died on Sunday have demanded independent investigations into the circumstances that caused her death.
Stacy Okyere, a Form 1 student, who was admitted to the school only a month ago, died on February 4.
The family say the inaction of the school caused the death of their daughter.
“The school has killed my child”, father of Miss Okyere, Kingsley Okyere told 3News in an exclusive interview.
This accusation has been denied by a highly placed source from Aburi Girls Senior High School. The source said, the young lady did not die in the school.
Nevertheless, Kingsley Okyere says his daughter who is also his first child had no underlining condition and wants the school to provide a more detailed explanation of the circumstances leading to her death.
