Demonstrating students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have burned down the official vehicle of the Dean of Students and reportedly ransacked the Vice Chancellor’s office.
The angered students have also ransacked the security post on the school premises, where all security personnel have fled, in a demonstration that has turned chaotic.
The students claim the schools management is brutalizing them after school authorities accused the students of engaging in illegal ‘morale’ activities which included drumming during a hall week celebration.
The campus of KNUST has been relatively rowdy following the conversion of some all-male halls into mixed ones.
Reacting to the developments, the public relations officer of the school Kwame Yeboah told Morning Starr Monday that the authorities of the school have not lost control of affairs at the school as is being suggested by some Ghanaians.
