It appears the University authorities of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi have bargained for more than they expected with their new policies of restricting and controlling the students who are considered mature in every sense of the word.

What was supposed to be a peaceful demonstration and a boycott of lectures by the students of the KNUST led by the school’s Student Representative Council (SRC) President, Kelvin Sah has turned into a full violent agitation.

As at now, Ghpage.com reporters have confirmed masked armed policemen have been deployed to KNUST campus amidst the violence but unfortunately, their presence has aggravated the situation.

The police met resisting students who pelt them with stones and anything could lay their hands on. We have even gathered several warning gunshots have been fired by the police around the Destiny Block to dispel the crowd to no avail.
