Police in Kpando have launched an investigation into circumstances which led an attack on Kpando Senior High School (KPANSEC) by some students of Kpando Technical Institute (KPANTECH) in the Volta Region.

This follows an official complaint was filed by authorities at the Kpando Technical Institute, Monday.

Security was beefed up at Kpando Senior High School after an alleged attack by some male students of Kpando Technical Institute on Saturday, May 7.

A teacher at Kpando Senior High School explained that some students of Kpando Technical Institute jumped the school walls and entered "our campus wielding cutlasses, machetes and all sort of dangerous items."

Both schools, situated at Kpando in the Volta Region have their campuses divided by a road.

He said it was the second time students from KPANTECH have attacked KPANSEC.

He told Joy News the clash was renewed Saturday night after some old students of KPANSEC were involved in a fight with students from KPANTECH.

"The KPANTECH boys recognized some of the boys who are old students of our school so they vented their anger on our students when they came back from town," he explained.

According to him, the school bus and parts of the school's dormitory were vandalized by the irate students.

"They tried to organize themselves again this afternoon [Sunday] and that was when the police and authorities came in and calmed them down," he added.

Meanwhile, the Principal of the KPANTECH, Isaac Afari said although the attack is regrettable, it was in retaliation to a similar attack by students of the junior high school.
