The school is currently under heavy security guard and classes have been suspended.
reporters on the ground say there is tension in the school as some students have begun packing out of the school.
Some of the students who witnessed the brawl between the two have said, the teacher molested the student in his attempt to seize the unapproved items from him; the abuse angered some of the students.
Reports say the school’s storeroom was broken into by the enraged students who retrieved cutlasses and clubs to vandalize school property.
Vehicles, lighting and water systems, furniture and other school property were not spared in the onslaught.
Scores of the students had been picked up by the police at the time of filing this story; Mynewsgh.com reporters say six of the students have also been hospitalized after sustaining injuries in the demonstration.
