In an exclusive interview with Original Tv News reporter Bismark Mensah, the Unit Committee Chairman for Fofuo Electoral Area, Rockson Ntiamoah, confirmed the incident and described it as worrying.
He accused a tutor of Barekese Senior High School who was part of the supervisors at the center, of denying the boy the chance of going out, with claims that the candidate might have returned to the room with a foreign material.
Family of the student, Original News has learnt, is, preparing to take a legal action against the teacher/supervisor.

Above all, Educate Africa Institute (EAI) describes it as a right infringement and we are calling on the West African Examination Council, Ministry of Education, and Ghana Education Service to apprehend the culprit and prosecute him accordingly. We need not frighten students in the exam hall. Education is not a life and death affair.
