Students of the Free Pentecostals school in Voinjama, Lofa County are protesting over the refusal by the County Health Officer, Dr. Aaron Kollie, to allow them do internship in Tellewoyan Hospital, Supt George Dunor said.
He said the Lofa County Health Officer confirmed refusing the students because they did not meet requirements of the internship.
The students had completed their first phase of academic training at the United Pentecostal Mission and were required to go for the internship at the hospital.
The students, Supt Dunor said, were qualified for the internship because they had graduated from the school. But Dr. Kollie says he was given no information about the internship.
As a result of the incident, he said he set up a nine-member committee to look into the situation and report to the offices of the superintendent within two weeks for appropriate solution.
