Students of Accra Girls’ Senior High School are picketing this morning as part of their efforts to put pressure on the management of the school to allow them to go home following reports that six of their colleagues have contracted COVID-19.
The anxious and fear-gripped students have clustered and massed up at the schools’ premises waiting for their worried parents to come and convey them home.
Police officers have stormed the school’s premises to restore calm.
The students, who gathered outside their classrooms, kept chanting: “We’ll go home.”
Speaking to CTV’s Fredalvis Agbenyo, a parent said: “I heard the news last night, so, I rushed here to find out what was happening…I’m anxious and scared and, so, we need the school authorities to tell us something”.
Most of us know the circumstances in the early 2000s. The acts of this infamous thief who made people live and fear and panic. “Atta Ayi”. Well everyone had a story to tell about him. But what are the truths; and what are falsities. Take a read here:
Raymond Ayee Ayeetey was born in Adabraka, Accra. He was a school-going child until he quit in class 4 after his mom traveled to UK. Ataa Ayi learnt how to drive and later became a taxi driver.
In an interview with one of the media houses he recounted his story that, in 1998, he drove someone to a festival in Okropong and on his way back, got into an accident which destroyed his master’s car. He returned to Accra jobless and a debtor. In seeking for a job, a friend introduced him to another (Eddie) who needed a skillful driver.
The need for this skillful driver was for car looting. Ataa Ayi joined Eddie to help him with his criminal activities. Initially, on finding out that his job was to aid car looters, he expressed his dissatisfaction. But he also needed the money for his pregnant wife and his business ambitions.
In his need for money, Ataa Ayi joined the gang, of car looters. The operation of this gang involved monitoring people who go to the banks to withdraw money, attacking and stealing their money. Ataa Ayi’s first operation was in 1999 when he and his gang stole 12 million cedis of which he got 2.5 million cedis for himself.
One fateful day, the gang came across a gun in a police car and took it. They decided to use it for their criminal operations but none of them knew how to actually use it.
The gang hijacked cars and robbed people from banks and busses. The frequency of these acts made people believe he had charms that protected him from gunshots and the police. A victim one day told his story of how he was robbed even in traffic. Another eye witness narrated his story of how a man was trailed by the gang from a bank where he had withdrawn 22 million cedis. When he stopped to give the money to his wife, he was crossed by the robbers amid firing. The gang also followed a pastor from Osu where he had withdrawn 56 million cedis, entered the church but could not snatch the bag containing the money. They entered into an office and met one pastor who was checking the money. They shot him and made away with 6 million cedis.
In total, the cash the gang made away with was about 700 million cedis plus cars, telephones and jewelry. Ataa Ayi became so popular that his face was put on billboards throughout the country. His name even became a common household name and nickname for thieves
In 2000, the police, in pursuit of a lead went to Chorkor for his arrest but Ataa Ayi had travelled a funeral. On realization on how he wanted he was, he went into hiding.
The police searched vey possible place he must have been operating and living. All his gang members were arrested or killed from the search except Ataa Ayi. People even then promoted stories of his invincibility and powers.
However, even the best of criminals have a day when they will be captured. Ataa Ayi’s was at Nungua while being the caretaker of his elder sister’s house. There was an argument between the tenants in the house where the his sister’s daughter insulted him. Ataa Ayi then beat up the tenant for which the case was reported to the police.
On 28th February 2005, the police went to his residence and found him drying his clothes. They came to arrest him on counts of assault only to find out he was the most wanted criminal in the country. He was arrested whiles begging the police on his knees not to kill him.
While in custody, Ataa Ayi claimed he was tortured and coerced to sign statements which he claims some of which were not true. He also claimed that most of the witnesses who testified against him at his trial committed perjury, but he was happy to have been sentenced. He was later sentenced to 160 years with hard labour and is still serving his time at the Ankaful Maximum security prisons in Cape Coast .
Ataa Ayi is now a pastor in prison and now regrets all his past crimes and sins and has accepted Jesus as his savior.
Ataa Ayi still pleads with the government to be granted pardon. He hopes to become a great pastor on his release.

Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has sent out a message of commiserations to the family of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie known in politics as Sir John.
The Forestry Commission CEO passed away on Wednesday at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
In a post on his verified Facebook Timeline, the Vice President indicated that he last spoke with the former General Secretary of the NPP on Tuesday, June 30.
“I have learnt with sadness the passing of Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu-Afriyie aka Sir John, former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party and Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission. I spoke with Sir John only yesterday but little did I know that was our last conversation.
Sir John was a good man who truly paid his dues to the Party and Ghana. I will miss him,” Dr Bawumia’s post read.
President of the Republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo reacts to the sudden demise of the late Sir John. Sharing this on his Facebook page, he wrote:
I received the news of the death of Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, aka Sir John, with great shock and deep sadness. Indeed, the disbelief and grief expressed by many at the news of his death are testimony to how people, in and out of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), felt about him.
Passionate devotee of the Danquah-Dombo-Busia political tradition, outstanding stalwart of the NPP, strong defender of human rights as a lawyer, proud, faithful adherent of the Christian Adventist faith – these were the multi-facetted aspects of the career and character of ‘Sir John’, which earned him considerable renown both as erstwhile General Secretary of the NPP and CEO of the Forestry Commission. Energetic, ebullient, jovial, with an exceptional sense of humour, and possessing a limitless store of folktales and proverbs, he affected positively every person with whom he came into contact. He was truly unforgettable, and our party and government owe him an immense debt for his work and commitment.
My wife Rebecca and I extend our deepest condolences to his entire family. Sakora Wonoo has lost a valiant son. He will be widely missed.
May the Good Lord bless him, and give him a peaceful place of abode in His Bosom until the Last Day of the Resurrection when we shall all meet again.
Sir John, we will never forget you!!

Just days after getting disappointed by her baby’s daddy ,former HIV/AIDS Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah seems to be expecting another baby soon.
Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has taken to social media to disclose that she is one-month pregnant for Mr.Stephen Ampofo.
This was after she had taken a pregnancy test at home using a test kit.
This is quite surprising because no one would ever think she would get herself pregnant by the same Mr. Stephen Ampofo who seems unwilling to name their first child.
At this point in time, it is obvious Joyce Dzidzor Mensah would be the most confused mother in the world.
From the way things are unfolding, it is certain she isn’t a legal wife to Mr. Stephen Ampofo.
At a time that Mr. Stephen Ampofo has even blocked her from calling him, no one knows what Joyce Dzidzor Mensah would do next.
Would she have to keep the pregnancy or abort it as soon as possible?
If she decides to abort the baby is it not right that she first seeks the consent of Mr. Stephen Ampofo?
