Although the cause of the incident is yet unknown, preliminary examinations conducted by the Ghana National Fire Service hint to an electrical issue.

In an interview with Citi News, the school’s principal, Bernard Forson, pleaded with the public to donate some supplies to the facility.

The agency is preparing to host a number of student engagements to educate students on fire management, according to Municipal Fire Commander DO1 Emmanuel Acquaye, who is now on the spot with his troops as part of investigations.


The school has received GH $20,000 from New Juaben North MP Nana Adjei Boateng to help with the urgent needs of the afflicted pupils.

Nana Adjei Boateng gave Citi News a briefing on his findings and said he will urge the appropriate parties to intervene and solve the situation so as not to interfere with the pupils’ academic pursuits.
