Two additional Somé SHS staff arrested for alleged food theft


Two additional individuals—the assistant headmistress and a cook—have been arrested in connection with a scheme to steal food items meant for students at Somé Senior High School in the Ketu South municipality. This follows the earlier arrests of the school’s matron and bursar.


On the evening of Friday, May 24, the bursar and matron were searched by some alumni and an assembly member as they were leaving the school premises. Food items were found hidden in a bag and the trunk of a car.


Following these initial arrests, the Assistant Headmistress was also detained for further investigation by the police.


The confiscated items included tin tomatoes, mackerel, cleaning agents, and insecticide spray, among other things found in the matron’s possession.


In an interview with Citi News, the Senior House Master, Byron Kwakutsey Kpeli, stated, “This has been going on for a long time, and this arrest will bring some change.”


Kpeli further told Citi News, “There are mixed feelings in the school following the arrests. The police have been to the school to conduct investigations, and the storekeeper has been invited for questioning.”


According to Citi News sources, the four suspects are scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, May 27, 2024.
