The investigation was sparked by a search conducted by some alumni and the assembly member on the evening of Friday, May 24, as the bursar and matron were leaving the school.

The search uncovered food items, including tin tomatoes, mackerel, cleaning agents, and insecticide spray, among other items found in the Matron’s possession.

Furthermore, two other individuals, including an assistant headmistress and a cook, have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a cartel stealing food items meant for students.

The assistant headmistress was subsequently detained by the police for further inquiry.
