JHS student beaten with iron rods for allegedly stealing GH¢50

A first-year Junior High School (JHS) student of the Koforidua Sarkodea Basic A school has been assaulted by his guardians for allegedly stealing GH¢50.

The boy, Samuel Agyei Tawiah, is said to have forcefully admitted to stealing the money to end his ordeal.

The student who lost his mother at birth has been staying with his auntie and her husband who have allegedly been maltreating him.

According to Citi News sources at the school, the guardians who accused the boy of stealing the money subjected him to severe beatings with an iron rod inflicting deep cuts around his left eye.

The boy, sensing danger, then admitted to the crime indicating the money was given to a colleague student, a situation which forced the guardians to match him to the school. But on reaching the school they could not identify the said student he allegedly gave the money to.

The guardians who were angered by that move jumped on him beating him again in front of teachers and students at the school.

The teachers who were allegedly threatened by the guardians when they tried intervening then called in the police who came to escort the student and his guardians to the police station.
