The Ghana National Union of Technical Students (GNUTS), has described as insensate the murder and scooping the genitals of a female student, Nana Ama Clark, in Cape Coast by unidentified person(s).
GNUTS, in a release signed by the Coordinating Secretary, Abubakar Abdul-Karim, said it was very sad and unimaginable “that such barbaric practice of killing and removing parts of the human body, saying such cruel practice should never again be allowed to fester in any part of Ghana.
Such incidents are also a pointer to the fact that perpetrators of such in the past got away without punishment. We call on the government to ensure there are severe consequences awaiting such evil minded individuals.

STATEMENT ON THE INSENSATE MURDER OF NANA AMA CLARK
We are dishearten by the news of the senseless murder of Nana Ama Clark, a final year marketing student of the Cape Coast Technical University which occurred on Friday, May 13, 2022 at Ola Estate in Cape Coast.
We condemn this inhuman act in totality and in the strongest terms possible. We call on the Ghanaian authorities to act thoroughly, decisively, and impartially to bring those who committed this criminal act to face the full wrath of the law regardless of whoever is involved.
The murder of Nana Ama is not only sad but deeply disturbing because this is not the first time something like this has befallen our country.
For GNUTS, such incidents are also a pointer to the fact that perpetrators of such in the past got away without punishment. We call on the government to ensure there are severe consequences awaiting such evil-minded individuals.
We are however aware about the effort by the Ghana Police Service to track down the perpetrators of that heinous crime.
While, we confirm the status of Cape Coast Technical University for the pursuit of higher learning, we call on all students countrywide to prioritize their personal security with all seriousness.
Further, we urge all students to avoid the temptation of entrusting people with their precious lives.
We commiserate with the family, SRC of CCTU, members of the University Community and the entire Technical and Vocational education community in these hard times.
May we not rest until Nana Ama receives justice!
Abubakari Abdul Karim
