Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogo, Lydia Seyram Alhassan will be visiting Daniel Osei, the University of Ghana Level 400 student who was attacked on campus.
In a statement copied to GhanaWeb, the MP indicated that she had to cut her trip abroad short and join the student community of University Ghana to find a lasting solution to the problem of insecurity on campus.
“The Honourable MP is of the conviction that these repeated acts of crime ought not to have a place within the university community, and therefore assures the Vice-Chancellor, student body and student leaders of her total support and commitment as we join forces to confront this dastardly menace of campus insecurity head-on” the statement reads.
One student is fighting for his life after being attacked by armed robbers on the University of Ghana campus at Legon Saturday night.
Photos circulating on social media show deeps cut to the head, hand and legs of Daniel Osei, a final year Psychology student.
The student was reportedly attacked along the road leading from Pentagon to the Evandy hostel which is situated on the university campus.
Saturday night’s near-fatal attack is one of many such incidents witnessed on the campus recently.
But the Students Representative Council (SRC) has revealed in a statement issued on Saturday that the university’s authorities have led a delegation to visit the brutalised student who is receiving treatment at the 37 Military Hospital.
“As a matter of urgency, all street lights on campus are being worked on. Also, University Management is working hand in hand with National Security to increase patrol on campus starting tonight 5th May 2019.
Students are being encouraged to remain calm and prepare towards their exams as the SRC is working hand in hand with University Management to ensure the safety of all students,” the statement said.
