A NORTH East Guadalcanal Chief has condemned the recent attacks on students of Ruavatu Provincial Secondary School over the weekend.
Speaking to the Solomon Star on Monday, Chief Benedict Garimane said that the attack on the students, involving the alleged rape of a female student was inhumane, inappropriate and unnecessary.
Reports in this paper stated that thugs entered the school, threatened and attacked students and also allegedly raped a female student.
“These are the behaviors of animals not human beings.
“Such attack is indeed unnecessary and should not have taken place in the first place as it will bring nothing good for the school, its staff and students and also nearby communities.
“Disrupting school programs and even scaring of students and staff and eventually raping a student is not only inappropriate and unnecessary but also inhumane,” Chief Garimane said.
Mr Garimane said he understands that this was not the first attack on the school, adding that many have occurred in the past.
Mr Garimane meanwhile called on all nearby communities to cooperate with both the school and Police to have the perpetrators brought before the law.
