Students Of KNUST Warned Not To Remain On Campus

Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) are warned to not remain on campus after midday on Saturday, September 18.

Only foreign students and students permitted by management can stay, the regional minister has directed.

According to the Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC), it's picked intelligence that some “unruly” students are planning some disturbances on campus on Friday, the eve of vacation.

In a press statement issued on Wednesday by the top of REGSEC, Simon Osei-Mensah, who is additionally the regional minister, the campus remains a security zone as declared in 2018.

“It is instructive to remind the scholar population that the declaration of the University Campus as a security zone in November, 2018, remains effective and, therefore, it's an offence to demonstrate within the safety zone,” he stated.

He announced the deployment of security personnel on campus to “ensure peace and security and stop any unruly behaviour by any group of students”.

It will be recalled that a clash during the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) elections in July left some students injured. Properties at the good Hall of the university were also destroyed.

“In this regard, the Regional Security Council has put measures in situ to make sure that peace and sanity are maintained on the KNUST Campus which students leave on vacation day to their homes in peace.”

Mr Osei-Mensah warned that those that engage in acts of indiscipline are going to be dealt consistent with law.

Parents and guardians have also been urged to caution their wards to desist from acts which will disturb the peace of the Region.
