Authorities at the Kumasi Academy Senior High School (KUMACA) on Wednesday joined hands together to pray for students following the four deaths recorded by the school.
About four pastors from different churches and their members were spotted exorcising spirits from some of the students with ‘anointing oil and holy water whilst the school’s authorities looked on.
The pastors who were feverishly praying and blowing ‘tongues’ poured the anointing oil into a bowl and did a crucifix on the foreheads of the students to prevent them from dying like their teams.
Some of the students have blamed the series of deaths to ‘occultism’ practiced by some of their mates.
The students have been going through vaccination and screening by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) and a team from World Health Organisation (WHO) since Tuesday.
The screened students were given Azis 500mg tablets.
Blood samples of the dead and sick students have been sent to the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research Institutional to detect the cause of the deaths.
Some parents have withdrew their children from the school but have been advised to return their children for screening to avoid possible infection in their various homes and communities.
Some people have attributed the deaths to suspected meningitis.
