Akufo Addo summons Kan Dapaah, NAPO over KNUST violence

President Akufo-Addo has summoned the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, and Education Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh to a meeting over recent developments at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

The two ministers are expected brief the president on the situation and also inform him about measures that have been put in place bring matters to rest.

Students of the school on Monday, 22 October 2018, led by the SRC, marched against what they described as oppression from school authorities and unfair treatment as a result of unwarranted assault on their colleagues by some security officers.

The students as part of the riot vandalised school properties.

The students burnt car tyres, destroyed windows and doors of some buildings and blocked some roads on campus to prevent cars from moving.

The development has receive attention nationwide including alumni of the school who have describe as a show of bravery and courage by the students to fight against the unfair treatment being meted out to them by the management.

Others have criticized the students for turning what was supposed to be a peaceful protest into a violent one that resulted in them destroying several properties.

Although the protest is said to be directly as a result of the alleged brutalization of some students by campus security when they were holding a “morale session”, it has been linked to the fracas between management of the school and some students over the conversion of two all-male halls into mixed halls.
