A level 100 female student of the University of Ghana was stabbed on the Evandy-TF road yesterday, Tuesday, 2nd December 2014, on her way back to her hostel from a prayer meeting.
The sad incident occurred around 10:25pm yesterday while the hostels at that end of campus were enjoying their shift of dumsor. An eye witness who arrived at the scene shortly after the unfortunate incident occurred said an oncoming vehicle offered to take the lady to the hospital before the campus security arrived.
The unknown assailant(s) took advantage of the dumsor on campus to visit their cruelty on the innocent student. Checks by the hardworking SRC welfare committee chair confirmed the incident and gave the name of the lady as Michelle.
According to the welfare committee chair, the girl attended a Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) prayer meeting and was on her way back to her hostel when the unfortunate incident happened. She is said to have sustained cuts on her right fore-arm and around her head. She is currently undergoing treatment at the university hospital.
A few weeks ago, we published an article about the poor lighting on the Evandy-TF road and the danger it poses to students who ply that road. Many students have been attacked on that road this semester. A situation which even prompted the SRC to take proactive measures to curb the situation but it seems the danger still looms.
We will follow up on the incident and update you as and when we find new information.
