A member of University of Ghana’s Commonwealth Hall has been physically assaulted by some persons said to be residence of Katanga Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, (KNUST).
In a video which has gone viral, the perpetrators was heard instructing the victim to look into the camera and inform his colleagues to make available an amount of GHC 300 for his release.
”Send a message to your people. Talk! Wear your Vandal shirt, we are here at Sarbah Hall. Tell your people to bring GHC300 and they should stop beating our members” they said and shaved the victim afterwards.
Moments after the video got to the camp of Commonwealth Hall, some residence reportedly stormed Sarbah Hall demanding the release of their colleague.
This led to a scuffle between the two sides. According to reports, one was injured in the process while ten were arrested by the police for allegedly perpetrating violence.
Reports say some properties were destroyed.
