A five-member committee has been inaugurated to investigate the issue of vandalism by students of the Krobea Asante Technical and Vocational School.

This was done by the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah, on 25th January 2023.

The committee will be chaired by a justice of the Appeals Court, Justice Samuel Obeng Diawuo.

He will be supported by Rev. Rt. Nuh Ben Abubekr, a retired Methodist Bishop and Mr David Adu-Osei, a retired regional commander of NIB.

The others are Mr Richard Addo Gyamfi, Acting Ashanti Regional Director, Ghana TVET Service (member) and Dr Abeiku Apprey, Former Principal, Kumasi Technical Institute (member).

The Ashanti Regional Minister reminded the committee members of the disturbances at the school, which has generated public interest due to the level of destruction caused by students.

He noted that there is no clarity as to the actual causes of the riot and the extent and cost of damage, thus the need to set up a committee to investigate the matter.

The committee has also been tasked to ascertain the identity of the perpetrators and any other matter they will deem fit.

The committee is expected to complete the investigation and submit a report in two weeks.

Background

On Sunday night, Krobea Asante Technical and Vocational Institute students in the Sekyere East district in the Ashanti Region reportedly went on a rampage.

Some reports attribute the incident to the students not being satisfied with the performance of their predecessors in the 2022 end-of-year examination, among other allegations.

The students caused a power outage, broke into the storerooms of the school, scattered food items and vandalized cars belonging to the principal and senior housemistress of the school.
