Police Arrest School Principal Over Students’ West Africa Examination Fees

Police in Gbarnga have arrested the Principal of the James Dunbar Norris Elementary and Junior High School, a private school situated in the Bassa Community in Gbarnga, for alleged misapplication of entrusted funds in the amount of over L$50,000.
The money was intended to pay the West African Examination Council (WAEC) registration fees for 26 ninth graders, according to the Commander of the Crime Services Division of the Liberian National Police Bong County Detachment Inspector John Kelenso Flomo.
Flomo said Principal Jacob Dolo has been charged with first degree felony and is expected to be sent to court for prosecution.
Speaking earlier to the Liberia News Agency, County Education Officer Edward Kpulun said the Principal was apprehended by police when distressed students thronged his office to register their complaint.
The West African Examinations Council administered exams began on May 19 for 9th graders across the country.
Kpulun said previously Dolo had gone to the resident District Education Officer for Gbarnga, Mrs. Lydia Cooper, to serve as potter at one of the examination centers when the students surrounded his (CEO) office to express their problems.
The CEO lauded the students and parents for the bold step taken to seek the intervention of the Ministry of Education and admonished them to refrain from acts that have the propensity to undermine their case.
Principal Dolo admitted during police investigation that he received the WAEC fess from the students, but explained that the money was stolen in February while on his way to Monrovia to register the students for the WAEC exams.
In an interview with LINA at the local Education Office in Gbarnga, the students said they paid L$2,250 each as WAEC fees to Principal Dolo.
