KOTA BARU: The principal of the school hit with mass hysteria has appealed for professional help to resolve the situation.

Speaking at a press conference, Siti Hawa Mat said the studies of students of SMK Pengkalan Chepa 2 were disrupted, and her administration was at wits ends to find a way to rid the school of “bad spirits”.

“We had to close the school yesterday. To date, we have more than eight ustaz, bomoh and Islamic traditional experts to help us chase away spirits that are said to be in the school compound,” she said.

She said the school closure was necessary to enable the bomoh and ustaz to perform prayers before it reopened on Sunday.

Since Monday more than 100 students and teachers were hit by hysteria. Siti said the school welcomed any help from anyone who could help solve this mystery for good.

She said the school would hold special prayers for two hours with the students on Sunday together with two Islamic traditional experts.

Physical education teacher Norlelawati Ramli, 32 who was affected by the hysteria, said she felt something pinning her down.

She saw a black spectre right after she tended to one of the affected female students.
