The student who happens to be in his second year claimed responsibility for the last three fire incidents which ravaged dormitories, belongings of students such as trunks, chop boxes with food items, beds, and other valuables, including money.

The student was identified as the brain behind all the fire outbreaks in the school. The young boy has however been arrested based on his own confessions. According to him, he was forced to school into the Accra Academy Senior High School against his will and hence wanted to burn it down so it would be closed.

The second-year student claimed responsibility for the last three fire incidents which ravaged dormitories, belongings of students such as trunks, chop boxes with food items, beds, and other valuables, including money. Reason During interrogations, he allegedly told the police that he did that because he wanted to be a day student, instead of the boarding option which was offered him during his admission. He indicated that he hatched a plan to torch the dormitories with the hope that the school would be closed down. A committee set up by managers of the school to investigate the fire incidents, had a lot of fingers pointing at him. Process The boy allegedly confessed to the committee members and explained how he set ablaze dormitories in the school on three separate occasions. He allegedly said he bought petrol from a nearby fuel service station in a used mineral water bottle with which he set fire to the dormitories.

The suspect reportedly sprinkled the petrol in the dormitory, lit a match to set the dormitory ablaze during ‘prep’ time before joining his mates who were busy studying. Suspected Arson After the first two incidents of fire in the dormitory blocks, the Ghana National Fire service became suspicious of the recurring incidents. According to the GNFS, the pattern of all three fire incidents was similar as it happened around the time where all students were supposed to be at preps. The fire service reportedly lodged a complaint with the Police on June 25, after they doused the third fire on June 23. The boy was however handed over to the school authorities in the company of his uncle.

SHOCKING: 18 Out Of 20 Gorillas Contract COVID-19 At The Atlanta Zoo

SHOCKING: 18 Out Of 20 Gorillas Contract COVID-19 At The Atlanta Zoo

According to reports, officials in the State have confirmed that 18 of 20 gorillas at the Atlanta zoo have contracted COVID-19.

This comes a few days after employees reported their first case. Many gorillas had runny noses and were coughing with an appetite change.

Zoo officials let it be known that no evidence suggests animals can transmit the virus to humans despite humans being able to transmit it to gorillas. “While humans are known to be able to transmit the virus to animals such as gorillas, and these cases have occurred at other zoos, there is currently no data to suggest that zoo animals can transmit the virus to humans.”

Officials continued, “Regardless, Zoo Atlanta visitors do not pose a transmission threat to the gorillas or vice versa given the distance between the areas used by guests and the animals’ habitats,”.

Sam Rivera, senior director of the Atlanta Zoo, stated there was concern because there is a strict protocol around COVID-19, but the gorillas were still affected.

“The infections occurred in an area of the Zoo where COVID safety protocols are already at their most stringent,” Rivera said. “The use of PPE when working with great apes was already a standard practice at Zoo Atlanta due to their susceptibility to many of the same illnesses experienced by humans, including the common cold and influenza.”

At this time, the Atlanta Zoo is “using monoclonal antibodies to treat the gorillas at risk of developing complications from the virus,”.

Any Married Man Who Claims He Does Not Have Side Chick Is A Liar, I Have One And My Wife Knows It – Odike

Ghanaian businessman and politician Akwasi Addai Odike has disclosed that he proudly engages in extra-marital affairs which his wife is aware of and fine with.

According to the 57-year-old presidential aspirant, his wife knows her role and the side chick also understand her position thus they both respect each other and get along quite well.

Speaking to Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr FM, Odike said almost all married men have side chicks but they feel ashamed and guilty to reveal their identities.

He maintained that any married man who claims he does not have a side chick is a liar.

“I’m married with a girlfriend. My wife and girlfriend are both aware of this.”

“My father was polygamous, but I can’t sit here and tell Ghanaians I’m not. If any man is honest with himself and God. You do not have to swear to any woman that you are the only one. Never will I flatter anyone.”

“But if I discover that you are a suitable woman who can bring me joy, then sure. I expect my woman to understand me unconditionally and to love me unconditionally.”

Odike added that his primary source of happiness is women so he ensures that he treats women well, and have as many as he could afford to take care of.
