Oti Boateng Students Hospitalised Over Alleged Food Poisoning
Over a dozen students of the Oti Boateng Senior High School in Koforidua, have been hospitalised over what school authorities suspect to be food poisoning.
Reports say the students started complaining of severe tummy upsets after they ate ‘waakye’, a popular meal prepared with rice and beans Monday from the school’s kitchen.
Although school authorities are yet to officially speak to the issue, a source close to the school says that scores of students complained of diarrhoea after consuming the food.
The affected students were rushed to the Regional Hospital at Koforidua, where they are receiving treatment, the source added.
