A number of students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have suffered various degrees of injuries following a clash between members of the University Hall aka Katanga and Unity Hall aka Conti on Sunday.
The students also destroyed school property including chairs and glass.
The vetting process comes to an abrupt end as rival halls Conti and Katanga hold concurrent morale sessions and refuse to agree to procedures at the Great Hall.#SRCVetting#Campus360 pic.twitter.com/kIXlW1cqrD— Campus360 Daily (@Campus360_daily) July 4, 2021
A management team member was beaten to pulp by the infuriated University Hall students and got injured when a bottle he had on him broke and cut his fingers and other parts of his body.
The scuffle continued inside the Great Hall during the vetting of an aspirant who was from neither halls.
The students from the rival halls were said to have been making excessive noise, disrupting the ongoing proceedings.
The Electoral Commission unable to handle the rapidly escalating situation decided it was best the procedure be postponed, following which, a full blown fight broke out.
Security personnel on campus have, for the intervening time, restored calm on campus.
