KNUST Students Gets Raided By Masked Men

Three masked men robbed some Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) students in their hostel rooms at Ayeduase New Site in Kumasi.

The students were fast asleep in their rooms when gun-wielding robbers forced open the doors and stole three laptop computers, a tablet, and four mobile phones.

According to the police, one of the students was injured in the incident, which occurred on April 7, 2022, at about 2:30 a.m., after being hit by a pellet at his occiput.

According to the police, two of the victims, Hope Alphonse, 22, a final-year Electrical Engineering student, and Obed Armah, 27, a second-year Dentistry student, accompanied by some security guards of the university, reported the case to the police.

“The students reported that on April 7, 2022, at about 02:30 hours, while in their rooms, three masked men forced open the door to their room. One of the suspects, armed with a locally manufactured gun, pointed same at them and the other two suspects robbed them of three laptop computers, a tablet, and four mobile phones, respectively,” the police narrated.

“The case is under investigation and efforts are underway to get the suspects arrested to face the law,” the police report noted.

According to a police document, the armed suspect fired a shot during the operation, and the pellet struck the occiput of Elton Modestus Gyabeng, 24, who was then rushed to KNUST Hospital for treatment.

The policy document, which Ghnewsfile acquired, stated that the injured student was in stable condition after receiving treatment, and that police personnel had since visited the crime scene and begun investigations.
