This follows Thursday’s clashes between residents of the Unity Hall and the Unversity Hall.




The announcement comes amid heavy police presence on campus after the disturbance which left 12 people injured and three vehicles damaged.


The latest development was a conclusion reached by the University’s Executive Committee as part of a measure to aid investigations into the violence.

In a press statement detailing the outcome of the emergency meeting, KNUST Registrar Andrews Kwasi Boateng explained that any event that will require the massing up of students is banned until further notice.

Meanwhile, the police say it is in the process of securing CCTV footage of the clashes and will peruse it accordingly to bring the perpetrators to book.
