Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have vandalised school property as part of Monday morning’s demonstration.
The students are protesting against what they call oppression from school authorities.
On Friday, a planned students’ customary procession – which has lost favour with university authorities – was thwarted by campus-based security, but not without casualties.
Pictures emerged on social media over the weekend of brutalised students. According to the students, the macho security descended on them and beat them up, many of whom have been hospitalised.
A statement sighted by Joy News states that Monday morning’s demonstration is being led by the Students’ Representative Council.
The operation ‘Calm Life’ unit of the Police Service was deployed to KNUST amid the unrest. Later in the morning, the military was also deployed after tensions increased.
Luv FM’s Kwesi Debrah reported that a section of the students have mounted road blocks on campus and are marching to other halls of residence to prevent their colleagues from attending lectures while others have marched to the administration area; vandalising property.
