The death of nine students of St. Charles Liwanga JHS believed to be final year students preparing for tomorrow’s BECE have brought so much pain and sorrow to members of the public hearing the breaking news.

The deceased were among thirty-one final year students who had gone to assist the headteacher of the school to harvest his rice on Friday but sadly, upon returning from the place, the canoe on which they were crossing the river capsized, leading to the demise of nine of them.

In the wake of this heartbreaking news that took place in the Saboba District, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the district, Mr. Bingrini George has disclosed to the media that the District Security Committee is set to meet with the Ghana Education Service (GES) to discuss the canoe disaster that caused the death of nine students in the Northern region.

Furthermore, among the pressing issues to discuss include sanctioning teachers and heads of schools who use students as farmhands for their personal gains or even considering seizing their professional license as teachers.

This follows complaints by the members of the community who revealed that many teachers in the District have been regularly engaging students as farmhands on their farm, especially on Fridays. To them, taking their wards to the farm is unacceptable, thus needs to be banned.

In the midst of all these, the headteacher of the school who allegedly went into hiding after the incidence happened has willingly reported himself to the Saboba police and currently assisting in further investigation.

However, the bodies of the students have been given to their parents for burial after a ritual was performed at the River by the elders of the community as their custom and tradition demand.
