Following twitter trends and videos of students in a chaotic scene trying to take cover from armed robbers, the management of the University of Cape Coast have finally voiced out.
According to them, no student has been harmed by armed robbers according to some reports on social media.
The Public Relations Officer for University of Cape Coast, Major Baah, in an interview with Kasapa News dismissed the rumor urging the public to disregard it.
“Nothing of the sort has happened on campus, it was just a prank that someone used social media to spread. Our investigations show that no armed robbers were on campus, no student has been injured or robbed of their belonging. It’s an outright fabrication and the public must disregard this rumour. The students are safe, we have adequate security protection for them.” Major(rtd) Kofi Baah Bentum stated.
