This advice has come at a time when students of the higher learning institution accused the Vice-Chancellor of oppressing students and impeding on their rights, and has been nicknamed “Kumasi Adolf Hitler” by some students. 

This led to a peaceful protest last Monday where students were on their way to present a petition to the VC. However, things turned violent after the students damaged dozens of cars and properties.
