A student at Christian Service University (CSU) in Kumasi was assaulted by a group of individuals alleged to be affiliated with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti Region.

The student, reportedly a member of a pro-NPP group called TESCON, allegedly engaged in disruptive behavior during a lecture by former President John Dramani Mahama, ignoring warnings from event organizers.

The student was subsequently removed from the auditorium by security personnel.

A verbal altercation ensued, leading to physical assault by NDC supporters.

Police intervened and rescued the student, but it is unclear whether the student received medical attention.

This incident highlights the need for political tolerance and peaceful coexistence in academic settings particularly in the country’s presidential and Parliamentary elections expected to be held on 7th December 2024.

The patrons of the event including some staff of the university who witnessed the alleged rude behavior of the student described his actions as needless and not a reflection of moral training the University expect from its students.
