English teacher of Islamic SHS loses sight due to assault by police

English teacher Kofi Antwi was injured by the police during the recent incident at the Islamic Senior High School in Abrepo, Kumasi, and is now blind.

In an interview with Ashanti Regional Coordinator Elisha Adarkwah on ClassFM, Guidance and Counseling Coordinator Gladys Manu stated this.

The instructor was allegedly attacked after approaching the cops to stop them from assaulting students during the chaos.

When they put tear gas on him, it took some time before he felt the pain…because it’s that bad…I suppose he feels the pain the moment he opens his eyes.”

It appears that the team has made some progress with the victims, according to Mrs. Manu, who is also in charge of the counseling team.

In the past, there was a lot of tension and fear. However, since Monday, they’ve had the support of the guidance and counseling team, and you can see them laughing and conversing as if nothing happened.

It’s only an accident, as we’ve explained to them. They need to forgive themselves and those who hurt them, and judging by the expressions on their faces, I don’t think I need to say anything more.

They have forgiven and are smiling. Several others appeared to be in such a foul mood that they declared they could never forgive the officers.

For the time being, she has ruled out the possibility of becoming a police officer. The Guidance and Counselling Coordinator indicated that the client is now able to express that she has forgiven them and forgiven herself.

That’s all we’re trying to do is get their minds back to their books and then forget about this issue, and also guiding them that in case of anything, there’s a guidance and counselling coordinator in their school instead of going on their own way, they should rather go to the coordinator, they should submit to him or her,” she continued.

She reassured them of her support for them and the rest of the class.

“As for the teachers, one teacher is critically ill,” she added. From here, we must travel to him and pay him a visit. He was released from the hospital just a few hours ago, but he still can’t see.”

“I suppose it’s due of the teargas,” she said. Because it’s so painful, he won’t be able to see it for a long time. ”

A confrontation between students and police during a demonstration on Monday resulted in 38 students being taken to the hospital.

Police used warning shots and tear gas to try to disperse the students protesting the frequent knockdowns near their college campus.
