It was earlier reported that Over twenty students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), in Kumasi, have been arrested after the students went on rampage on Monday morning, destroying public and private property in a violent protest.
This was confirmed by the University’s Relations Officer, Kwame Yeboah Jnr.
The students were protesting alleged brutalities meted out to their colleagues who were arrested at the University Hall last Friday and later granted bail. Citi News’ Ashanti Regional correspondent, Hafiz Tijani, reported that armed military and police personnel have taken over the KNUST campus after the protest led to the destruction of private and public properties. More details further came in on how the University Authorities called for the closure of the school campus.
The Above story drew us closer to our security Expert and the CEO of Lionheart Security Mr Ahmed and asked if the university Authorities are on top of the issues, he answered Yes! That is the best security decision to take under search dangerous circumstances because lives of student are endangered if such incidents happen, therefore the institution must first of a call off every active business and allow the police and other security experts to ensure all tempers calm and the entire situation is dealt with before active school business can begin.
Security issues have been one of the most ignored issue in the country where activities of some individuals is always leading to violence and disorder in some various parts of the country, it’s about time this matter is critically attended to, to help curb such deviancy and make our country safe to live in, Mr Ahmed added. We pray the police finds solutions to resolve all the problems in the school so everyone can move on with our normal lives.
