The examination centre of Bright Senior High School (SHS) in Kukurantumi has been relocated by the West African Examination Council to Ofori Panin Senior High School, following a recent attack on its officials.
The proprietor, Bright Amponsah was said to have incited the attack after being upset that WAEC officials had tightened security during the examination.
The attack left some of the officers and a journalist wounded and hospitalised.
WAEC in a statement said it had decided to relocate the examination centre to “ensure the integrity of the examination and safeguard the lives of examination officials.”
It also promised to take legal action against any person “involved in compromising the integrity of the examination in any manner” in future incidents.
“WAEC wishes to use this opportunity to encourage all supervisors and invigilators to continue to be vigilant and carry out their duties diligently and without fear.”
The proprietor of the school has been picked up by Police from the Eastern Regional command.
Apart from this incident, there have been other riots at Juaben Senior High School and Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School.
