Scores of students of the Islamic Senior High School in Kumasi have reportedly been rushed to the hospital following an incident with police.
According to a 3news report, students of the school early on Monday morning embarked on a protest to register their displeasure over the absence of speed ramps resulting in several accidents being recorded in and around the school.
The protesting students were said to have been met by the police who fired gunshots to disperse the incident.
The report indicates over 20 students have fallen unconscious and have been rushed to a hospital.
There are currently ambulances in the school transporting the injured students to the hospital, while police presence in the school has intensified.
Some parents are trooping into the school following the incident.
“I heard there is a scuffle in the school and the police attacked the students, shooting and beating them. I heard the police chased them even into their dormitories and were beating the girls. I feel very bad seeing school children on the floor unconscious. Everybody is messed up here,” a parent said.
