We have seen reports in the media, especially on social media, to the effect that a student of the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) has lost his life following an attack on him.
We wish to state that the reports are false. No student of the University has died as a result of a robbery attack.
Indeed, on April 25, 2023, a student, after studying late into the night was returning to his hostel, outside the campus. The student was attacked by unknown assailants and abandoned along the Kumasi-Sunyani Highway, somewhere near the University.
Thankfully, a Campus Security Staff spotted the student. The Security Staff rallied the support of others and rushed the student to the University Clinic for initial medical care. Subsequently, the patient was referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) for further treatment.
We can confirm that the student is in good condition and has been discharged from the hospital. We kindly appeal to the public to disregard the false reports of death.
We assure the public that AAMUSTED Campuses are generally safe because of security measures such as routine Police and Campus Security patrols.
