The school authorities in collaboration with the Ashanti Regional Security Council has also imposed a dawn to dusk curfew on the students.
A peaceful protest started against the recent action made by the school’s Vice Chancellor, Obiri Danso on mixing the male halls ( Unity and University aka Katanga) with females.
The CEO of the National Youth Authority, Mr. Emmanuel Sin-yet Asigri, has blamed the Vice-Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Professor Kwasi Obiri-Danso for the recent brutalities meted out to some students and the subsequent demonstration, riots, and vandalism that followed on Monday, 22 October.
“To say the least, the tacit endorsement of these shocking and barbaric acts by authorities of the university is very disgraceful, shameful and an affront to Ghana’s constitutional order and further leaves an indelible scar on Ghana’s democratic dispensation.
“The National Youth Authority (NYA) calls on all peace-loving Ghanaians including state security agencies to hold the university administration headed by Vice-Chancellor Professor Kwasi Obiri-Danso, under whose watch this is happening, accountable, and demand that he act responsibly and take the necessary actions in a timely manner, to avert any further brutalities and confusion that will only mar the peace on the KNUST campus,”
a statement signed by Mr Sin-nyet Asigri, said on Monday, 22 October 2018.
