“There must be something alarming our children at the school. They were unsettled after observing a shadowy figure, resembling a woman, seated on the table, prompting both the teacher and students to flee from the classroom,” expressed one parent.
However, upon investigation by teachers and students, no evidence of the apparition was found at the purported location.
“We strongly suspect that one of the staff members may be involved in occult practices,” added the concerned parent.
Officials from the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education have initiated an inquiry into the incident.
Upon the arrival of H-Metro crew at the school, district education officials, led by an individual identified only as Kureva, were observed leaving the premises.
“We came to gather information about the case, and we are yet to compile a report to submit to the authorities. I am not in a position to comment further; it is advisable to check with the Ministry later after our report is submitted,” stated Kureva.
