A male second-year Business Administration student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has been found dead in his room at the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Hostel also known as the Student Representative Council (SRC) Hostel.
Confirming the incident, KNUST’s University Relations Officer (URO), Kwame Yeboah Junior, said the cause of the student’s death is not immediately known, but added that the school authorities do not suspect “foul play”.
The deceased, an affiliate of the University Hall (Katanga) was the first to be given a key to a room which accommodates four people.
Other occupants who needed access to the room could not find the key but realised the door to the room had been locked from inside.
The lifeless body was found after some students, with the help of campus security, broke the door to the room on Tuesday, 4 September 2018.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at the morgue of the KNUST Hospital, for an autopsy.
