School is shut down over ghost scare in Ghana

The decision to close the school was made after a ghost sighting sent several pupils into a state of mass hysteria.
The peculiar series of events occurred at Fumbisi Senior High in the country's Upper East Region.

According to reports, a group of pupils had been studying late at night when a "strange object which looked like a human" suddenly appeared in the room with them.

The teenagers were so spooked that they started to run terrified in all directions.

In the chaos that ensued, 19 pupils collapsed and one even jumped off a second-floor balcony. One group went out and started pelting the housemistress' bungalow with stones at 1am in the morning before moving on to the headmaster's bungalow and assaulting a night watchman.
Several pupils ended up in hospital and some are still thought to be there.

"According to the information that we have, some of the girls have some attacks which looks spiritual so they have been rushed to the Sandema Government Hospital," said Superintendent Samuel Ntoso.

"The school has been closed down and all the students have left the campus."

Punk kids decide to throw rocks at Headmasters house, attack security guard, get caught claim that a ghost made them do it, and they closed the school. Makes sense to me... The old devil made me doing excuse strikes again only in Ghana it actually worked. I guess from no on punk kids can get away with anything there. If you get caught just blame it on a ghost making you do it and you are home free!!

What makes an attack look spiritual? If the thing looked like a human I'm sure it was a human and that they just panicked and ran like a herd of spooked cattle. Someone pranked them pretty good.

Because if they blame "spookies" that's external not of tgeir doing or fault, Plus spooky sells , sounds cool and gets more attention than to say bored rebellious kids ran a muck.
