The relocation came about as a result of a claim made by Madam Jattu Jalloh that the portion of land where the school is located was her personal property.

According to the founder of the Cape Community School, Gabriel Scott intimated media practitioners that the school had been established on the said portion of land for over seventeen years without confrontation from any community member, and further observed that the Aberdeen Creek where the school is to be relocated was not an ideal learning environment.

During his visit at the relocation site, Bishop Abu Koroma called appealed for government assistance towards ensuring the existence of the school, stating that the school was part of humanitarian gesture to the children of Aberdeen and as a way of providing them a better future and learning environment.

He maintained that the Flaming ministries had spent seventy million leones in the construction of the Cape Community School, and pointed out that the school authorities needed to come onboard and explained to Madam Jattu Jalloh the ramification of her action.

The Chairman of the Cape Community at Aberdeen, Kysta Davies stated that the school should not be relocated to Aberdeen creek, as it would exposed the school children to extreme dangers, adding that during the September period in every year, they always experienced flooding in the tourist board office, and most importantly the new site for the school was closer to the swam area.

“This is not a conducive learning environment at all and we cannot afford to risk the lives of our children just because of residential building purposes,” Kysta Davies added.

He furthered that the creek land was not part of the cape community and they would not extend it any further.

However, AYV managed to reach Madam Jattu Jalloh for comments but learnt that she was out of town on vacation, but the Public Relations Officer who this press spoke to claimed   that Madam Jalloh had supported the school with 200 bags of cement and two tons of iron rods for the school relocation exercise.
