Three students die on KNUST campus under bizarre circumstances.


It is very unusual for an institution of higher learning to experience a tragedy of such magnitude on two separate occasions on the same day.

Information reaching from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) campus has it that the university community has been thrown into a state of shock and disbelief as news of the tragedy spread across campus like wildfire.

Earlier in the week, news broke out that two male students were engaged in a fight, where the two traded blows to the amazement and amusement of onlookers in one of the halls of residence.

But this time around, information from very reliable sources on campus confirmed that indeed three students of the university lost their lives on two separate, but bizarre incidents at the weekend.

The first incident on campus occurred at dawn on the day before Palm Sunday, at around 3:00am when a car believed to be carrying four students including one from the University of Ghana, crashed into a tree leading to the death of two KNUST students on board the vehicle.

One of the dead students was later identified as a final year KNUST medical student believed to be the son of the NDC MP for the Nalerigu-Gambaga Constituency, Alhaji Seidu Issifu Baba.

As if that wasn’t enough for the day, a much more bizarre incident occurred a few hours later when a level 100 male student who was visiting a colleague at the Unity hall allegedly passed out and died in the course of having a conversation with the colleague.

He is alleged to have suddenly collapsed and fell down the stairs of the first floor onto the ground and died in the process after being rushed to hospital.

The university’s Public Relations Officer has also confirmed the incident to a local radio station. The bodies have been deposited at the morgue pending autopsy.

He also added that the families of the deceased students have been duly informed about the tragic incident.

The circumstances leading to the death of the three students in one single day is currently under investigation by the university authorities.

  1. Wow! What a tragedy. Students should kindly stay safe and avoid things that would put their lives in danger. They are Ghana’s future leaders so please study hard and succeed in life. That’s what you were sent to school for.

  2. Yes indeed, that’s exactly what students are sent to school for and we pray for God’s protection over their lives at school. This is very sad. May their young souls rest in peace!

  3. May their souls rest in peace…eiii this is really a heartbreaking news…a day before palm sunday too….I pray God gives their parents strength to cope with this!!
