The national executives have since condemned the act. In a statement signed by by General Secretary of NUGS Shadrack Mireku, Coordinating Secretary Yiadom Boakye and , Press and Info of NUGS Frimpong Gilbert, accused Cobbinah of “taken the laws of Ghana into their hands, to unlawfully  brutalize the official NUGS President on the premise of TV3 Ghana, when Mr Luqman was in the business of upholding and defending the Constitution of NUGS by preventing the imposter Julian Mawuse Cobbinah who carries himself as NUGS President, from granting an interview on TV3 News at 10pm."

Meanwhile, the New Patriotic Party also condemned the issues saying Abubakar was in pain after been manhandled by the police.

“We cannot phantom how and why the police will extend its bias hands in the handling of issues in this country to the students fraternity. This unreasonable act beats our imagination,” a statement by the Youth Wing of the NPP said.
