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”.
