On the recommendation of the Sekyere East District Security Committee, the Ashanti Regional Security Council, REGSEC in consultation with the Regional Education Directorate closed down the Institute indefinitely.
In a follow up visit to the school, Chairman of the REGSEC, Simon Osei Mensah, announced the composition of a five-member Investigation Committee to unravel all circumstances regarding the riot.
