Earlier today myaimreport.com reported that some students of the University of Cape Coast have been attacked by robbers.
Well, according to the University of Cape Coast authorities, there is no attack on their student – denying reports of robbery on campus last night.
This comes after images of students appearing to run from an attack flooded Ghanaian social media or internet space in the early hours of Tuesday.
The internet space has been flooded with various reports suggesting the alleged robbers moved through halls and ransacked rooms.
But reacting to the development, the Public Relations Officer of the University Major Retired Kofi Baah Bentum said there has been no incident on campus in recent times.
“Nothing of the sort happened, it was somebody trying to be mischievous. It was a prank call. What happened yesterday was somebody being mischievous. We did our investigations and nothing like that happened.
“The security patrol team has checked all and nothing happened. No robber was found, no arrest was made and nothing of that matter happened.
“I can say for a matter of fact that there is no robbery or anything of the sort on campus,” he told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Tuesday.
DSP Irene Oppong, Public Relations Officer of the Central Regional Police Command, also commenting on this development, stated the reports of robberies on the university campus are inaccurate.
She said “The Central Regional Police command wants to put on record that we don’t have reports of such nature. Again we have verified from the university authorities and they don’t seem to have any idea of the said incident.”
