MP for Subin constituency, Eugene Boakye Antwi has called on the Criminal Investigations Department (CID ) of the Ghana Police Service to conduct comprehensive investigations into the incident that happened on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, in which some students of the Kumasi Technical Institute (KTI) clashed with some policemen.

He believes that the investigations will help unearth what really triggered the incident in which several students sustained various degrees of injuries while a couple of them were hospitalized.

He made this observation when he delivered a statement on the incident on the floor of Parliament, Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

Continuing, he said as “MP in whose jurisdiction the incident happened, I will not take sides but rather call for calm from the authorities of KTI and the Police Service”.

He said in as much as the conduct of the student body was very reprehensible, that of the Police Service in using live bullets and tear gas in their approach was not the best either.
