ELCK Emboasis mixed secondary school students in West Pokot County have gone on rampage on Monday night leaving a trail of destruction in the school compound.

School principal  Mr John Lukuyan said the students strike overnight around 2330 hrs, whereby the  male students numbering 90 who are boarders assembled themselves and started throwing stones to dormitories, tuition and administration blocks.

He added that the reason of the students causing mayhem at the school compound has not yet been established as police officers were called at night to restore calm.

“If it was a school issue the girls would also been involved but why only the male students, they also smashed the window panes and the school bus glass Windows,” he said.

West Pokot County police commander Jackson Tumwet confirmed the incident citing that Police officers from Kapenguria police station responded and quickly rushed to the school to restore normalcy.

“Calm has been restored in the school with 60 female students in the school compound while their male colleagues escaped to unknown places. The value of the damage is yet to be established,” he added

Tumwet added that the cause of unrest is yet to be known with no arrests made and the DCI officers are in the school carrying on investigation.

“The school will be under police guard until when we establish the cause of the strike, I urge schools to exercise calm during this term,” he proposed.
