A primary school in South Africa was forced to cancel classes for the whole day after several children reported being physically attacked by an aggressive ghost that looked like a little old lady. 

A strange incident occurred last Thursday morning at Fakamisani Elementary School in the Plettenberg Bay area, when several children said that a "short figure appeared in front of them in the classroom, looking like a grandmother with dreadlocks." 

Surprisingly, it was said that the alleged spirit was visible only to the disciples, and that he continued to beat the children until they threw salt at him.

Although this strange story may seem like a prank of students playing their teacher, the horror that gripped the class was quite real. 

The school administration was forced to cancel classes due to the growing furore and call the parents of the students to pick up their children. 

Excitement about what was happening at the school quickly spread on the social networks of the district to such an extent that the news reached the mayor of the district, David Swart, who visited the school to "make sure everything is under control."

Offering a local reporter fresh information about the situation, he sincerely conveyed a wonderful story, explaining that "it looks like the children saw an old lady in one of the classrooms, and either this old lady chased them or just disappeared." 

He further pointed out that "there is some uncertainty as to what this woman was doing, whether she existed, and they are finding out." 

Apparently, the investigation did not reveal any traces of interference that fit the description of the mysterious "ghost grandmother", so the school plans to hold a prayer this week in the hope of driving away the sinister spirit.
