Tuesday January 14th 2020, shocking news went viral online as a 15 years old form three students stabbed his mathematics teacher to death.

The shocking incident happened at GHS Ngolbisonn in the nation’s political capital Yaoundé and the cause of the attack is not yet known.

Security cameras to monitor all areas outside and within

Blast-mitigation window film

Metal detectors for all students and teachers and many more can help prevent such reckless loss of human lives in the hands of rogue individuals
