Pull down this trap to save lives

Dormaa-Ahenkro (B/A), July 5, GNA - An ancient school block that houses classes 1, 2 and 3 of stream "B" of Dormaa-Ahenkro Roman Catholic Primary "A" School is a death trap and poses a threat to the lives of innocent pupils and their teachers.

The the Block of three classrooms, said to have been constructed in the early 1940s, has developed serious structural problems and is in a state of disrepair, requiring its demolition to guarantee the safety of pupils and teachers.
