The girls and their teacher, whose names have been withheld are said to be recovering from their traumatic ordeal in a British hospital after they immediately flew back after the unfortunate incident.
The pupils in the company of their teacher, flew to Ghana on a trip that was meant to give them the opportunity to experience life in a developing country. They were part of a larger group of ten schoolchildren who paid £1,200 each for the trip.
According to MyNewsGh.comsources, they stayed in guesthouses within a secure walled compound and gardens a few minutes’ walk from a local beach where the dormitory-style rooms house up to six guests at a time.
