Further reports say the deceased student, simply identified as Gafaru and a native of Wa in the Upper West Region, was among two other students accompanying a tutor to a funeral at Banda Nkwanta in the Bole District.

“A tutor of the College lost a relative in another car accident at Banda Nkwanta and asked them to go with him.


“But when they got to the Larabanga side, the road was bad and one of the vehicle’s tyres just burst and somersaulted and Gafaru died on the spot,” the source indicated.

The vehicle, a brand new Toyota pick-up, was the official vehicle of the Principal of the College.

It could not be confirmed if the school’s Principal was onboard the vehicle at the time of the accident.
