According to reports by #UniversNews, a resident of the hall noticed that some of the rooms, whose occupants have left for home, were broken into.

“On Monday, around 7 pm, we saw that someone was toying with the lights. The persons will turn it on and off, so you’d think the bulbs are faulty. Finally, they all went off, and we went to ambush the suspect. Two of us approached from the L block whiles the other two were at the library before the two could get to the stairs, he had climbed the stairs, gone to to the upper block and jumped out of the hall but the rails caught his legs so he fell on his knees and injured himself, we chased him to Akuafo Hall and caught him lying under the hedges.” an eyewitness recounted. 

Further reports gathered by #UniversNews indicate that this is not the first time he has been caught for allegedly stealing.

The residents are entreated to stay home and observe the lockdown directive imposed by the government.

The JCR also called for calm among students especially those residing in the affected block and stated that hall management is working together with the police in the best interest of the students.
