“On Monday some people were arrested at Bekwai. On Tuesday we arrested some teachers too at Jachie Pramso. So far in Kumasi, these are the ones that have been brought to my notice. Before the exam started, we had a hint that some supervisors were arranging with private schools to take money so they could assist their students. We’ve had them removed.”

“Bekwai, three teachers were arrested, and those three teachers happened to be from a private school. Two guys, they were town folks at Jachie Pramso, two teachers. They have been arrested so far.”
