Police in the Ashanti Region have arrested a level 200 student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Elvis Nsiah, for threatening to stab some students of the university.

The suspect is alleged to have threatened to stab five students in the Continental Hall of the university and kill one other student in the same hall to pacify what he referred to as “the gods.”

The police made the arrest as part of investigations into the rioting that occurred at KNUST recently.

The accused person was put before the Asokore Mampong Magistrate Court and has been remanded into police custody to reappear on 30 August 2022.

“Meanwhile, investigations are still ongoing to get all others involved in the rioting arrested to face justice,” a statement from the police read.

Violence broke out between two halls of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology(KNUST) on Thursday, 18 August 2022.

The clash that started on the school’s campus around 5 pm was between the University Hall (Katanga) and Unity Hall (Continental).

This left 12 students injured, whiles properties and three cars parked in front of the Continental Hall were destroyed.

The riot is said to have ensued when students from Katanga attempted to use a route in front of Continental in a procession as part of their Hall week celebrations.

University Hall, as part of the celebrations, commenced what they call a ‘Zulu procession’ through some parts of the campus but their colleagues at Unity Hall tried to stop them from using their frontage.

This led to students pelting stones at each other.

For over a decade, the two halls agreed never to go beyond the Peace Junction when on processions.

Personnel from the Ghana police have been deployed to the school to prevent the situation from further escalating.
