Rowdy KTI students blocked road in front of the school

KTI Report: Armed policemen stormed girls dormitories with torchlight
Lawless display by students of the Kumasi
Technical Institute in the Ashanti region last
Tuesday was met by a police response deemed
excessive, extreme and abusive.

Rowdy KTI students blocked road in front of the
school, created an artificial traffic during the
celebration of a fourth position chalked by the
school in an Inter-Schools competition - the
biggest sports festival for students.

Testing the professional exuberance of the police,
the taunting students threw stones, smashing three
vehicles. Five men were injured, ASP Mohammed
Tanko counted his casualties.

At that point, the police force erupted. Ashanti
regional correspondent Erastus Asare Donkor
reports, the might of the armed men prevailed over
the armless.

"They are students but I can assure you they not
children" ASP Tanko explained the threats the
students posed to the peace.

Tear-gas filled the air and running boots of
police men filled the ground as they chased the
students helter-skelter in a general pandemonium
that descended on the institute Tuesday night.

And so rushing down from outside the school,
heavily armed police officers spread into
classrooms, dormitories like tributaries.

"I have never seen a situation where the police
will chase students into the school, into [their]
dormitories", a teacher decried what he observed
as extreme manhandling.

"They were beaten like armed robbers. I think in a
civilised [society], if you are fighting somebody
and he runs for refuge, you do not chase him into
his bedroom", a doctor treating 15 injured
students expressed his disgust.
Erastus Donkor said the police shut down the power
supply to the school and entered dormitories with
torchlight in search of 'stubborn'
insubordinates.
"It was total pitch darkness", he said.

Female dormitories were not spared as
protestations from house mistress did nothing to
discourage a search-in-the-dark, watch-and-arrest
operation - inside the girls dormitories.

"You could see students getting out of the
windows...you could find blood stains on the
doors" Erastus Asare Donkor witnessed the chaos.

In adrenaline desperation, some students removed
louvre blades, destroyed the mesh and jumped two
storey dormitories injuring scores of students in
the process.
