The headmaster of the school Mr. Ata Amponsah Frimpong has been included in the list of staff affected by the transfer while the school's bursar and accountant have not been left out bringing the total number of persons affected to nine.
Azeteng also revealed that the headmaster had been implicated in dubious deals, turned campus into akpeteshi and palm wine brewery joint and also glorifying sexual abuse cases.

Notwithstanding the above mentioned, a three member committee was set up to probe the issues further which resulted in the transfer of the affected staff. The committee came out with a full book report on the investigation, so based on the report the Brong Ahafo Region Education Directorate recommended that some teachers be transferred.

The committee members included; Mr Opong Amoah (Chairman of the committee), Mr Yaw Adumako Opoku and Madam Patricia Awuah. 
The recommendations have it that, allegation as regard sexual harassment could not be ascertained and that palm trees were felled, tapped and distilled in the school. But this started during the holidays and continued into the ensuing academic year when school re-opened. Also the directorate do recommend that the school collected unapproved fees from the students and issued unofficial receipts to them. 

It added that monies meant for the purchase of mono desk were misapplied.
So upon the above charges captured in the recommendation letter signed by the Regional Director of Education Mr. Kwadwo Osei-Asibey categorically stated that the head master should be transferred in his own interest, likewise others.

Below are names of teachers and administrative staffs transferred:
Ata Amponsah Frimpong (Headmaster ), Awuni Annahu, Nuamah Gordon, Atignongo Irene, Adjei Forkuo, Adu Kofi Moses, Dora Tempoah, Opoku Boadum(Bursar) and Tano Francis(Accountant).

In furtherance, the recommendation letter added that the Bursar and Accountant who had used unofficial receipts to collect unapproved fees be transferred. With the exception of the head master, other teachers were transferred based on rationalization policy.
In my follow up investigation and observations made so far is that some authorities such as the kyeremankoma Chief, Nana Guakro Effah and KINSS Old Students Association wanted to kill the story, but their efforts prove futile.

I must say emphatically that the paramount influential authority who sought to nullify the story and fought tirelessly has been the Chief.
Subsequently, upon hearing that the headmaster was transferred, he planned and arranged for publication against the decision of the Ghana Education Service.
