Two Ghana Men Arrested for Gambling in Classrooms

This story was published more than 6 years ago.

Two men in Aboabo, Ghana were arrested this week for gambling within primary school classrooms.

The men are accused of turning various classrooms into gambling spots for outsiders to come in and bet, while also using other rooms as public toilets. Interestingly, these activities were taking place during classes, meaning children were being disrupted by the activities going on. The men were detained and will face charges related to the activities they are accused of committing.

Speaking about the case, politician Koyo Agyare said, "We received an information that about eight (8) gamblers are in the school premises and our taskforce including some residents went there and arrested two of them. The remaining six were able to flee. I will take this opportunity to warn wee smokers, armed robbers and gamblers not dare come to Aboabo because they won't have it easy."

Okay, this is strange enough, but the way I read it was that people were also using the classrooms as public bathrooms. Could you imagine being taught subtraction and some random dude comes in and just drops something foul by the book case?

Like you said Slim , weird! Nice picture by the way.
But every casino needs a toilet after all 😉
Hopefully this guys will face really hard charges because the whole story is just ridiculous,
