An 18-year-old final year student of the Salaga Senior High School Abdul Rauf Mahama has been allegedly shot by his teacher, Mr Osman Abdulai Monday over wee-smoking claims.

The victim, Rauf, according to the brother, Asuma Issahaku, was suspended together with three of his colleagues in November for skipping classes and to smoke Indian hemp.

Even though Rauf denied the claims by the teacher, he was suspended indefinitely.

According to Mr Asuma Issahaku, Rauf in the company of some friends, was seen around the school by the teacher, Mr Abdulai who wasn’t pleased with their presence there so decided to question them.

The questioning, according to him, degenerated, leading to further confrontations between Rauf and Mr Abdulai and the subsequent shooting of the victim.

Meanwhile, efforts by Adom News to reach the Salaga Police Commander on the matter has not been successful.
