A final year student of Three Town Senior High School (SHS) near Denu in the Ketu South Municipality has stabbed his teacher.
The teacher, John Akey Kwashi, who teaches Information and Communication Technology (ICT) was allegedly stabbed for preventing the final year Visual Arts student from bullying a junior student.
The suspect, Gilbert Akakpo, aged 19, is reported to have aimed for the stomach of the teacher.
However, the swift use of the arm by the teacher to block the sharp object used led to deep cut on his arm.
Sources at the school said the incident happened on Wednesday, August 11, 2021, at about 12:50 pm behind the ICT Laboratory.
Prior to the incident, Mr Kwashi, who was teaching in the computer lab, heard a noise behind the facility.
He went out there to find the suspect, Akakpo, bullying first-year students but an attempt to intervene did not go down well with suspect Akakpo.
