The Ashanti Regional Police Command has indicated that it would sanction all officers involved in the brutalizing of some students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi.
The command has condemned the actions of the officers and described their conduct as “unprofessional” after watching the video.
On Saturday (November 25, 2017), the Officers arrested eight students of the KNUST for rioting and causing damage to vehicles around the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
This was after the Police were informed that students from the Kantanga Hall clashed with their counterparts from the Unity Hall during an outdoor event organized by Kumasi-based Luv FM, dubbed “Old School Reunion”.
The police arrested 8 of the rampaging students and took them to the Asokwa Divisional Police Command, where they were made to write their caution statements.
They were later granted bail and handed over to the Security Coordinator of the KNUST.

He appealed to individuals who fell victim or witnessed the act to report to the Command as part of its investigations.
Meanwhile, authorities at the KNUST are expected to sanction the students who engaged in the act.
