The police in Asokwa have been captured on video brutalising students from University Hall also known as 'KATANGA' of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). The students had allegedly clashed with their colleagues from Unity hall of the same university at an outdoor event. The police officers who refused to listen to the plea from the students were seen slapping and kicking the students as they dragged them to a waiting police van. Eight students were arrested and charged with rioting and causing damage to some vehicles but were later released to the security coordinator of the university. Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Police Command has condemned the brutality meted out to the students describing the action of the police officers as “unfortunate” and “unprofessional”. Deputy Ashanti Regional police PRO, Chief Inspector Godwin Ahianyo told TV3 on Monday that police are investigating the officers who misconducted themselves as exposed by the video. VIDEO
