The Student’s Representative Council, Koforidua Technical University wish to express its dissatisfaction and condemns the barbaric act of the Ghana Police Service, Koforidua on its students which was carried out Friday dawn at the Universal Hostel. About 100 students were arrested
The Police acted barbaric in their arrest which is against their fundamental human rights of the students. The armed Police officers numbering about 60 stormed the hostel with guns and shocker devices, broke into rooms while learning and others sleeping, arrested like hardened criminals and matched them on foot almost naked from their hostel to the Police Headquarters on a 4km road.
The Armed officers heartlessly detained the students for no crime committed, the police service did not consult the management of the University and the Hall President before the arrest.
The students were emotionally, mentally, physically and psychologically abused by the police officers. The police publicly embarrassed the students which has really affected their persona
We the Students Representative Council write to express our displeasure in the inhumane act the police have put our students through on the faithful morning of 14th December 2018.
In fact, the treatment that our students were put through even criminals and prisoners are not treated like that,
We therefore demand that our students who were put through such act must be compensated and the Government must ensure that our security use right and decent measures to solve issues rather than humiliating innocent poor and helpless students.
