23-year old final year student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Emmanuel Awuah is in police custody over the death of an Uber driver.
Police at Tafo-Pankrono in the Ashanti Region say Emmanuel confessed killing the deceased driver after he was arrested.
Police say the deceased, Thomas Danso who owed the suspect an amount of GHS1, 200 was unable to repay after he was approached by the suspect on several occasions to settle his debt.
A statement issued by the university on Thursday 16th July, 2020 however revealed that the culprit, at the time of the crime was no longer a student of the university. “Per the University’s regulations, a student who abandons his course for one full academic year without any course ceases to be a student of the university. In this case, the said student abandoned his course for two academic years, and can therefore NOT be referred to as a KNUST final year student” the statement insisted.
The statement signed by the University Relations Officer; Dr. Daniel Norris Bekoe also called on the Police service to apprehend Master Emmanuel Awuah’s accomplice for justice to be served.
