Education

Information gathered by Soky News indicates that Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have destroyed a lot of  school properties as their demonstration in the early hours of Monday, October 22 2018 gets out of hands.

The students think they are oppressed by school authorities hence protesting against that.

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 men descended on them and beat them up, many of whom have been hospitalised.

According to sources the 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 but a section of the students have mounted roadblocks 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; destroying properties.
