KNUST Authorities deny student clashes

Authorities of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have denied reports of violent clashes between two rival halls on the school’s campus.

Two students received knife wounds earlier this week in separate incidents.

One student was cut in the palm by an assailant, believed to be a student, while the other student was attacked and stabbed three times on the back by multiple assailants.

Some students who spoke to Ultimate News’ Isaac Justice Bediako explained that the two students were hurt during a confrontation between members of Unity and Katanga halls, which also resulted in 20 others sustaining various degree of injuries ahead of Unity Hall’s hall week celebrations.

‘There wa scuffle between the two halls, they were trying to show off, they were wielding machetes, throwing stones and stabbing each other,’ they explained.

 Contrary to this, the Deputy Registrar of University Relations Office at KNUST, Vincent Ankamah Lomotey, refuted media claims that there were clashes between students of the two halls.

Addressing Journalists, Mr. Lomotey admitted that the two students were indeed injured in separate incidents.
