Officials of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) supervising the ongoing WASSCE examination were attacked by students of Bright Senior High School at Kukurantumi in the Eastern Region of Ghana on Thursday over strict invigilation.
A journalist with the state-owned Daily Graphic was also beaten by the students during the melee.
His phone and bag were taken away by the students who chased him on a motorbike and pummeled him even as he jumped onto a moving commercial bus to save his life.
The marauding students trashed phones belonging to the invigilators.
They were angry about strict supervision and social-distancing protocols in the exam hall.
The police had to intervene to calm nerves.
