Graduate Students ‘Attack’ Haruna Iddrisu; Bodyguard Pulls Gun

Some angry graduate students mobbed the Employment and Labour Relations Minister Haruna Iddrisu at the Ministries enclave on Wednesday in a bid to fetch the Finance Minister for them to present a petition.

The GRASAG’s demonstration was to pile pressure on government to release their thesis and bursary grants. The irked students put concrete blocks and some placards under the minister’s official car to prevent it from moving while he was away to convince the deputy Finance Minister Cassiel Ato Forson to come and meet the students. According to Starr News, the behaviour of the students angered the bodyguard of the minister who was forced to pull out a gun and threatened to shoot those denting the car. Abdullah reported the demonstrating students chanced on Mr. Iddrisu who was driving by, and promised to fetch Mr Forson for them, and in a bid to assure them that he will return, he left his car behind and his driver.

The National GRASAG president Rashid Etuaful told the media, having waited for close to an hour, the crowd got incensed and began chanting which led the bodyguard to threaten to shoot them, but was restrained by other security men at the scene.The Employment Minister later returned with Mr Forson to receive their petition. The latter, however, said it was the Scholarship Secretariat that was supposed to have received their petition.
