Four bullies surrender to police
The four Nigerian students wanted by police for allegedly brutalizing a worker of the University of Ghana, Legon, on January 22, have surrendered to the police.
Nwosu Iheanyichukwu, Anyoku Ndodebe-Chukwu Arinze, Ifiyeye Sanni and Ohachenu Justice Somadina, were said to have reported to the Legon Police on January 27, a day after the Ghanaian Times newspaper published the story.
Two others, Ofuru Chinede Noble, 22 and Ogunnowo Omotope, 21, who were earlier arrested were arraigned before court last Thursday and were remanded in police custody until February 1.
The six students, all level 300, were alleged to have applied cruel punishment to get a cleaner at the University to confess to a theft of a lap-top computer.
They allegedly pinned their suspect, Philip Ettuh, 37, to the ground, heated an electric iron and pressed it against his upper body a number of times.
The incident was said to have happened on Monday, January 22 when the six students arrived at the campus and employed Ettuh's services to get their belongings to their room.
DSP Michael Teku, Legon District Police Commander, said the law was no respecter of persons, stressing that anybody who took the law into his own hands had to bear the consequence.
He said there had been a series of crimes on the University campus which involved Ghanaian students and they were all given the appropriate punishment according to law.
Mr. Teku stressed the need for students to abide by the laws of the land and live according to the rules and regulations of the University so that they did not find themselves in trouble.
He said anyone who had any problem on campus ought to report to the police to take action by investigating to establish if a crime had indeed been committed.
