Fear has griped Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as they contemplate boycotting lectures, Wednesday November 21, 2018 after a terrorist hinted of bombing the University.
An anonymous person posted on Jodel (a social media application) on how he intends to carry out a cyanide attack and shoot out in the various lecture halls to placate an awful experience at the university.
The posts which detailed how the act will be carried out warned students to wish their loved ones goodbye from now as it is no joke.
Read the full post below:
“A lot of you are going to die in KNUST tomorrow for all the pain you’ve caused me all these years… In our hearts we are filled with hatred for all you maggots. Why hasn’t there been a school shoot out in this country?… Death en mass…. Now is the time to wish your loved ones goodbye… It’s too late to be sorry, we already have given you enough chances to repent. And there is no mercy for anyone… I’m going to use cyanide gas to kill all of you… We will attack in the various lecture halls… We cannot be stopped. We will not be stopped. 21-11-18 I’ll make sure you people never forget this date. Some of you deserve to die for your callous nature”.
The post ends with the hashtags #ashwednesday.
It is immediately not clear as to why the anonymous person intends to carry out this act but ‘he’ hints on a callous deal meted out to him.
Jodel is a social media app which hides the identity of users so it is unclear as to who posted those threats yet students are not treating the message lightly.
On the various student platforms, some have called on the appropriate authorities not to make light of the situation juxtaposing that to recent heighten events in the University.
Academic work in the University just got restored to normalcy on Monday November 19, 2018 after a violent students uprising led to the shut down of the University for three weeks.
