Poro men invade primary school
Aggrieved members of the poro society are reported to have invaded the Baptist Model Primary School in Mangeloko in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone, sending the whole school in utter disarray with the headmistress and teachers running helter shelter to save their precious lives.
Our sources revealed that the ugly drama unfolded past Thursday when one of the school pupils who was a Poro initiate called, Yamba, went to school wearing a cap which was against the laws of the school. Reports continue that a teacher ordered Yamba to take off the cap but that Yamba out rightly refused for societal reasons and, consequently, the teacher forcefully removed Yamba’s cap.
Reports furthered that Yamba went back to the Poro bush and reported the matter which annoyed the other members of the society who, consequently, stormed the school campus, demanding the heads of the headmistress and the teacher who dared to take off the cap of the Poro initiate. The headmistress and the teachers reportedly took to their heels, leaving the school in pandemonium.
Meanwhile, the runaway headmistress is reported to have vowed never to return to the school.
