A suspected serial thief, believed to be in his late 20s, was been apprehended by the University of Ghana security after being accused of entering the room of a resident of the hall and attempting to make away with some items, including a laptop.
The man was first apprehended by students of the University who were playing football at the Gonja Field, which is a few meters away from the main Mensah Sarbah Hall. The incident occurred at about 10:00 am on Saturday, 22nd August 2020.
UniversNews understands that this is about the third time that the suspected thief has been caught attempting to make away with the belongings of students.
The alleged thief was then handed over to hall authorities at the porter’s lodge who in turn called the University of Ghana security to appropriately handle the matter.
The Nursing student also told UniversNews that the Legon Police have asked her to assist as they pursue the matter to court.
However, she told UniversNews that her imminent licensure exams will not afford her the necessary time for such a process.
“At the Police Station, my report was taken was told that they would be glad if I could take it up to the courts so they can remand him. But because I’m preparing for my exam, I can’t but they told me that they would contact me if there is an issue,” she added.
