Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has suspended all election-related activities for the 2021 Students Representative Council (SRC) elections.
This comes after residents of the Kantanga and Continental halls attacked each other during the vetting of the aspirants for this year’s elections.
We reported yesterday that supporters of two presidential aspirants clashed with at least one student sustaining an injury during the encounter.
“Investigations so far revealed that one student is officially known to have sustained a minor injury in the palm from a broken bottle and is currently undergoing treatment; at the KNUST Hospital,” the University Relations Officer, Dr Daniel Norris Bekoe said in a statement.
He added that a joint security unit made up of the police and the University’s security personnel has since managed to restore calm on campus.
KNUST management has also indicated it will institute a committee to thoroughly probe the disturbances and put forward recommendations to prevent similar incidents from reoccurring.
