By on

Some aggrieved parents of a government school at Iron City, a suburb of Kasoa in the Central region have locked up the headmistress over extortion.

The parents, who stormed the Iron City M/A basic school with their own padlocks, claimed the headmistress has been charging them exorbitant fees before admitting their wards.

The parents have vowed not to open the door until the Ghana Education Service acts on the matter.

The parents, calling themselves Concerned Citizens of Iron City, accused the headmistress of charging GH?50.00 for admission which is supposed to be free.

“This headmistress is killing us; she charges about GH?250 for admission, school uniforms and others when government said it is free. We are suffering, so government should change her,” an angry parent said.

Meanwhile, the police in the area have been alerted and are moving to the school to restore law and order.
