Six Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) students are currently on detention by the police for allegedly r@ping a first-year student,

On Wednesday, August 3, the six were charged before Asokore Mampong District Court.

They were all placed under police arrest.

The students are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction, according to their attorney Richard Adu Darko.

“These are students of KNUST who have been accused of rape,” he told TV3‘s Ibrahim Abubakar after hearing.
“Looking at the fact which have been presented to us, honestly we don’t see rape but that’s what they have been accused of and once someone is accused, the law says the person is innocent until proven guilty or the person pleads otherwise.

“So, now until they plead that they are guilty or a court of competent jurisdiction finds them guilty, they are innocent. At this material moment this is a court of first instance and they have been brought here for purposes of remanding them into lawful custody.”

The six students’ attorney, Adu Darko, stated that he will apply for bail on their behalf in the “proper forum” so that they can take their end-of-semester exams.

The hearing was postponed until August 17th, Wednesday.
