The management of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has revealed that the university will need about GHc1.7 million to repair properties that were damaged during the demonstration.
According to the University Relations Officer (URO), Kwame Yeboah, this figure excludes the cost of items stolen during the riot.
He added that the figure was specifically the amount needed to repair the items damaged.
These include damage caused to buildings, vehicles that were vandalized and the replacement of the CCTV cameras that were destroyed.
Yeboah went on to say that a committee would soon be constituted to look into the matter and determine the way forward.
However, he said, management has started the process of replacing some of the items destroyed as it could not wait for the committee to finish its work before taking action.
Yeboah explained that some of the things destroyed would have to be replaced to enable the university open on time.
Although he was not emphatic, he revealed that the university would soon reopen for students to return to campus.
The Chancellor of KNUST, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, is expected to visit campus on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, to see the extent of damage caused during the demonstration.
