KNUST: 2 Stabbed, 18 Injured In Riots

Two students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) are on admission at the school’s hospital after clashes ensued between students resident at Unity and University Halls.

The two male halls engaged in a fight on Monday dawn, which resulted in 18 other students getting injured.

There has been rivalry between the two halls for years but an argument between students of the two halls who met at the Republic Hall degenerated into fisticuffs, according to reports.

The 18 injured students have since been treated and discharged from the hospital while the two stab victims are still on admission.

The University Relations Officer (URO), Mr Ankamah Lomotey, however said calm has returned to the place.

Meanwhile the Vice Chancellor of the university is locked in a meeting between the executives of the two halls to resolve the situation.
