The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana Legon, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu has said the management of the university will boost security to protect students.
This follows an attack on a level 400 student of the institution on Sunday evening along the Pentagon- James Topp Nelson Yankah Hall road.
Addressing the media after a tour of the crime scene, Prof. Oduro Owusu said that plans have been made for strong collaboration with the Ghana Police Service to beef up security at the institution.
“I have spoken to the National Security Minister. We will not take things for granted because we value human lives. When we roll out the strategies, we expect to cooperate with the Police. It is not going to be a nine-day wonder. It is not going to be a temporary thing. It will be something that we will work out for the future.”
Daniel’s attackers inflicted machete wounds on his head.
He is currently receiving treatment at the 37 military hospitals.
Speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show, the Acting Dean of students at the university, Prof. Godfred Bokpin also said his outfit will do its best to reduce the future occurrence of such incidents on campus.
“The Vice Chancellor and some members of the University management visited the students yesterday at 37 hospital and the University made the undertaking to absorb the medical bill and to assure the students that we will see how universities will manage examination process so it does not affect graduation.”
“From yesterday, there was a national security person on campus with their patrols and they are going to do this for all the period that the examination will take place. There is an emergency meeting today [Monday] to brief students on the arrangements that are being put in place and also how students should comport themselves.”
