Students and teachers of Pokukrom Ibrahimyya Islamic Junior High School in the Ahafo Ano-South District of the Ashanti Region were left stranded after being locked out of their classrooms by a contractor.

According to a video shared by UTV on March 21, 2024, the Chief Executive Officer of Masum Construction Limited, Abu Masum, aggrieved by the government’s failure to pay him for the construction of the classroom block, decided to lock up the facility.

The video sighted by GhanaWeb shows the contractor busily putting padlocks on the doors of the classrooms while the students and teachers were left stranded on the compound of the school.

Some of the teachers are seen sitting around a table while some of the students engage their colleagues in conversations during learning hours.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service and the Ministry of Education are yet to speak on the matter.
