-Alumni of Katanga Hall have promised to bring perpetrators in the police service to book
-The Association has released a statement to that effect
Some former residents of Katanga Hall and Alumni of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology have released a statement in the aftermath of a video that surfaced in the news.
According to the Alumni, some elements in the Ghana Police Service brutalized some students of the university who were affiliated to the Katanga Hall; an action the Association believes to be unfortunate.
The statement indicated that they were going to take up the case until justice is served when the ‘disgraceful’ police officers who were captured in the video are brought to book.
The statement which was signed by President of Katanga Alumni – Kumasi Chapter, Gideon Owusu-Yeboah, revealed that the union will assist investigations to ensure the officers involved in the brutality are brought to book.
Excerpts of the statement read, “…we, the Alumni of Katanga, by this press release, serve notice to the savage and disgraceful police officers that we are coming for them with our all.”

The statement went on to reveal that the brutalized students did not engage in any unlawful act to merit such treatment.
According to eyewitnesses who were at the old school reunion organized by Luv FM, there was an altercation between rival halls, Unity and Katanga which caused some students to disperse the scene.
Some of the students who were dressed in Katanga Hall uniforms on their way back to the university were ‘attacked’ by the Asokwa Police who were at Afful Nkwanta on the Accra-Kumasi road.
The action which was caught on camera was aired on TV3 and has sparked nationwide outrage with students and past students alike clamoring for the head of the Police officers who were involved in the action.
