The commander at the Konongo district police station, DSP Osei Adu Agyemang, said “These five suspects who are all in Form 2, ganged up and decided to go to House Three and then bully the first years. They first attacked and assaulted some of them. They further moved to the mini market on campus and grabbed another first year student and attempted to drag him away to molest him but he was rescued”.

Alhaji Mallam Baaba Abubakar in an interview with FM’s Sunrise hosted by Alfred Ocansey on Monday explained that “we only want justice”.

“We have buried him. We buried him on that same day. I bathed him before he was buried. He was stabbed in the left rib. I bathed for him and so I saw the position and the stab went deep into his rib”.
