Management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has suspended the 2021 Students Representative Council (SRC) election-related activities following a clash between two halls of residence on campus.
In a statement, signed by the University Relations Officer, Dr Daniel Norris Bekoe said: “Investigations so far revealed that one student is officially known to have sustained a minor injury in the palm from a broken bottle and is currently undergoing treatment; at the KNUST Hospital.”
It added that a joint security unit made up of the police and the University’s security personnel has since managed to restore calm on campus.
KNUST management has also indicated it will institute a committee to thoroughly probe the disturbances and put forward recommendations to prevent similar incidents from reoccurring.
The University authorities, however, assured parents and stakeholders that they will continue to provide a safe and secure environment for academic work on campus.
