Thirty-four students of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) were on Saturday, 29 February 2020 arrested on the campus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
The suspects were rounded up at the university, during the climax of a hall week celebration by students of the Unity Hall.
The police said the suspects failed to explain to them why they were found on the campus at midnight, hence their arrest.
This comes amidst earlier warnings issued by the Ashanti Regional Security Council, declaring KNUST a security zone.
A statement by the Students Representative Council of UCC on Sunday, 1 March 2020, also said it has “taken initial steps to ascertain the veracity of the situation.”
“Some executives of the SRC, together with the Atlantic Hall President, have visited the police and have begun engagements with the CID in charge of the case”, parts of the statement read.
“All students should remain calm to avoid further aggravation of the situation”, the statement further added.
