NDC MP’s son falls victim in KNUST accident
One of the two persons who died in a ghastly accident at
the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST)
has been identified as the son of a Member of Parliament (MP).
Family sources say the deceased who is a final year
Medical Student of KNUST is the son of Alhaji Seidu Issifu Baba
National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for Nalerigu-Gambaga
Constituency. Arrangements are currently underway for his
burial in accordance with Islamic customs with the family
indicating they are distraught over the unfortunate incident.
It would be recalled that two students died on the spot and three others
left with life-threatening injuries after a private vehicle they were driving
in crashed on KNUST Campus on Saturday, March 27, 2021.
Four of the occupants have been confirmed to be KNUST students while
one was a University of Ghana student with the injured said to be
receiving treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
Preliminary investigations suggest that the driver, in an attempt
to negotiate a sharp curve, ran into a tree, killing two persons
on the spot. The mangled vehicle has since been towed from the
scene of accident while KNUST police reveal that investigations
have commenced into the incident
