Government has instituted a three man committee to investigate the cause of the fracas between the police and pupils of the Muslim Congress School at Kissy.
The committee, whose members will be composed of a representative from the Board of Educators and the Human Rights Commission, will report to President Ernest Bai Koroma within two weeks. They will be specifically looking into the role of the disputed land and the purported land developer, one Mr Bangura, whose activities were alleged to have sparked off the incident.
The setting up of the committee, according to State House, is to swiftly take action to restore permanent calm in the school and the surrounding communities including the police.
Government has therefore decided to undertake repairs to some of the damaged school facilities and replacement of others as well as ensure that school’s activities resume at the earliest possible time.
