A matron at the Wa Technical Institute along with two accomplices (names withheld) are in police grips for allegedly stealing food items belonging to the school. Their arrest was based on a tip off by some staff of the school in collaboration with an advocacy group,”Yirimanbo”. The suspects were caught with food items including bags of rice, sugar, cartons of milk and boxes of tin tomatoes suspected to have been stolen from the school’s pantry. The suspects were caught whiles transporting the booty in the school’s Mahindra pick-up truck; registration number GV-1134 Z to an unknown destination.
Some school staff members who spoke to W93.5FM, claimed the matron has the habit of stealing food items from the store room which they believe is shared with some influential persons in the school.
The suspects have since been granted police inquiry bail pending further investigations.
