The University’s clarification follows reports by some online news portals indicating two students of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) were attacked and stabbed to death Monday night on campus by armed robbers.
However, the spokesperson for the Cape Coast-based University in an interview with Kasapa News monitored by Georgeweb.org denied the reports and consequently urged members of the general public to do so.
Major Kofi Baah said “Nothing of that sort has happened on campus it was just a prank that someone used social media to spread. Our investigations show that no armed robbers were on campus, no student has been injured or robbed of their belonging”
“It’s an outright fabrication and the public must disregard this rumour. The students are safe, we have adequate security protection for them,” he told Yaw Boagyan.
Meanwhile, a viral video on social media shows students running helter-skelter out of various lecture hall for their lives.
