KNUST Is An Academic Environment Not A Battle Ground – Dr. Daniel Norris Bekoe

The Public Relations Officer of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology ( KNUST), Dr. Daniel Norris Bekoe, has stated that the University is not a battleground.
“2 weeks ago there was a clash between some supporters of University Hall and Katanga Hall. The battle was later settled. We have gathered some information that those students have planned to fight after their examination” he said.
According to the University’s Relations Officer, the presence of security personnel is to prevent the reoccurrence of a similar incident on October 18th, 2018 which led to the destruction of property wealth of over 3 million cedis.
Morris Effah the Vice President of KNUST SRC in an interview with Joy News noted that students are happy with the presence of security personnel on campus.
“We have not gotten that in thought so if the security agency have gotten it, and their doings are in line with the National Security, I think we have nothing to say but to support them” the Vice President said.
“Personally the presence of security men does not scare me because I am not involved in the rivalry between two halls”, a student said.
