The Headmaster of the West Africa Senior High School (WASS), Mr. Ofori Antwi has said that six students of the school have been knocked down by vehicles due to lack of foot bridges on the Madina-Adentan highway.
Out of the six, five sustained serious injuries and one died in the latest incident.
According to Mr Antwi, the authorities of WASS have had series of dialogues with the local assembly of the Adentan Municipality to resolve the issue but no action has been taken.
He said it is unfortunate for the young girl to die in the latest of the accidents which occurred on Thursday, 8 November 2018. The incident sparked riots and protests resulting in the burning of car tyres and blocking of the road by the residents in the area to compel authorities to complete the abandoned footbridges.
Mr Antwi added that, they will continue to engage the students to be vigilant when crossing the road.
He made the comments in an interview with Accra100.5FM’s Nana Amoako Gyampa, who visited WASS to interact with students following the recent accident.
Some of the students also pleaded with the authorities of the country to expedite work on the footbridges to prevent further casualties.
