Alhaji Mohammed H. Cambodia Fire consuming St. Charles SHS
The Northern Regional Director of Education, Alhaji Mohammed Haroon Cambodia has attributed the frequent fire disasters at St. Charles Seminary Senior High School in Tamale to spiritual attacks. 

This is the third time the school has been ravaged by serious fire especially at the students’ dormitories in less than one year. The old dining hall of the school which was converted into a dormitory for victims of the last year’s similar fire disaster also got burnt on Friday morning 22nd March, 2019.

In somewhere last year, the authorities of St. Charles were forced to temporarily close down the school over fire outbreak.

The Director therefore expressed the need for the school authorities to resort to spiritual investigations to uncover the mystery behind the disasters, rather than attributing it to human factors. 

Speaking to WatchGhana.Com correspondent in Tamale during his visit to the school, Alhaji Cambodia said it was becoming quite rampant for a single learning institution like St. Charles to witness disasters at short intervals. 

“I think we have been drawing our own conclusions that this fire is as a result of human factor. But I think there is some spiritual aspect to this kind of disaster. And whether we like it or not, we are Africans. And the African is said to incurably religious. So, I think that we should go into religious matters as regard this particular disaster”.

The Northern Regional Education Director predicted another looming disaster in the school following the perilous manner the Volta River Authority (VRA) electrical fittings or installations are done in and outside the dormitories. Alhaji Haroon Cambodia was particularly unhappy about how electrical cables on the school campus had been buried or entwined in between the trees, which he indicated was a recipe for future disaster. Meanwhile, students are currently preparing to write their final examinations. The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed who visited the school earlier today, has challenged school authorities and the PTA to investigate the cause of the disaster. But the Regional Director of Education, Alhaji Mohammed Haroon insists those charged to investigate the incident must rather look at the spiritual side of it.
