The Ashanti Regional Security Council has declared the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology as a security zone.
TheRegional Security Council’s (REGSEC) fears that some members of the University’s Alumni are instigating their members to engage in activities that would disturb academic work and peace is what has necessitated the decision, the chairman of the REGSEC, Simon Osei-Mensah explained in a press release yesterday.
He said the University would remain a security zone “until further notice” and that “anybody who directly or indirectly engages in activities that may disturb the peace on the KNUST Campus shall be sternly dealt with in accordance with the law.”
“The Regional Security Council urges the general public to strictly observe this directive since any breaches may attract the maximum legal security penalty or sanctions associated with it,” he cautioned.
