A release issued by KNUST SRC’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Richard Amoh, on Sunday, 29 September 2019 stated that: “The President of the KNUST Students’ Representative Council, Master Adu-Baah Charles Junior was harassed, assaulted and nearly kidnapped”.

The PRO explained that the case has been reported to the KNUST Police and investigations have begun into the matter.

The student leadership also condemned various cases of assault and harassment meted out to other student leaders at various times on campus.
