Legon student butchered by suspected armed robbers along Pent-Evandy hostel road

A level 400 student of the University of Ghana named Osei, has been attacked by armed men believed to be robbers along the road leading from Pentagon to Evandy hostel situated on the University of Ghana campus.

The victim who was said to be butchered mercilessly, thereby sustaining several cutlass wounds on his head by these unknown assailants has been admitted to the 37 military hospital and currently undergoing treatment according to sources.

Reports also suggested the armed men managed to flee after the incident.

Some individuals, reacting to the incident on twitter, recalled similar instances where they have grappled with unwarranted attacks by criminals who constantly attack them on that particular road and also the road heading from UPSA close to PRESEC at night.

The situation, according to them has seen little or no change, despite police intervention leaving them at the mercy of these bandits.

Meanwhile, Legon’s SRC President, Sylvester Amoako who has since responded to the incident says their team would visit the victim early tomorrow morning at the hospital to find out what actually transpired.

He has also guaranteed to enter into talks with the school’s management to plan on how security patrol can be deployed into such ‘dangerous’ areas so as to prevent the future occurrence of related events.
