- A student of KNUST, known as Lebene, has reportedly lost his life
- According to sources, he drowned in the Lake Bosomtwe
- The university has revealed that it would release an official statement after investigations are completed
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that a third year Chemical Engineering student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has lost his life.
According to MyNewsGH.com, he drowned when the university’s Engineering College embarked on a trip to the Lake Bosomtwe on Saturday, March 17, 2018.
The deceased, who was only identified by his nickname, Lebene, was allegedly cautioned against swimming at a particular area, but he retorted by saying that he often swam in big rivers, and as such a “small lake” such as Bosomtwe could do nothing to him.
Some of his colleagues became suspicious when they realized he was not on the bus as they returned to campus, and therefore alerted the authorities.
An unnamed student who also went on the trip, disclosed that he sat close to Lebene as they began the journey. “We were singing ‘jama’ songs and making noise together”, he stated.
YEN.com.gh understands that on the next day, the university’s authorities were asked to identify the body of the deceased, which has since been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital’s morgue.
The university is reportedly going through the necessary protocols and would soon release an official statement on the matter.
