Twenty students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) arrested during a violent demonstration on campus on Monday have been granted bail.
Angry students who staged a demonstration burned down the official vehicle of the Dean of Students and reportedly ransacked the Vice Chancellor’s office.
The irate students also ransacked the security post on the school premises, where all security personnel have fled, in a protest that turned chaotic.
The students claim the schools management is brutalizing them after school authorities accused the students of engaging in illegal ‘morale’ activities which included drumming during a hall week celebration.
At least one student was injured and 11 others were arrested after students clashed with internal security personnel of the school Sunday. The campus of KNUST has been relatively rowdy following the conversion of some all-male halls into mixed ones.
The students have been given a 12:00pm deadline to leave campus by Tuesday.
