JHS student attempts to murder teacher for punishing him

By on

murderAn attempt by a form one student to murder his teacher who punished him for absenting from school has been foiled. Richard Koduah of the Birim B/A Junior High School in the Nsuta District of the Ashanti Region, in his bid to payback his female teacher, surreptitiously entered the teacher’s room into the roof carrying a knife and machete.

The incident happened last Saturday at about 12:30am at a time that the teacher, Sandra Oparebea, was asleep. Narrating her ordeal and how she managed to escape death, Ms Oparebea told Onua FM that while asleep, she heard some unusual noise from her roof which woke her up.

According to her, she wondered what was the cause of the noise. Not long, she said her co-tenants, who heard the noise, started knocking at her door to find out if she was alright. She said her co-tenants joined her to search where the strange noise was coming, only to find Koduah on the roof holding a knife and machete. Koduah was said to have confessed to them that he was there to murder Ms Oparebea.

The case has since been reported to the Police and the school authorities but the teacher says she fears for her life. She is thus requesting to be transferred from the town.
