The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ransford Nsiah told Graphic.com.gh,  the deceased was working on a laptop belonging to one of the KNUST students when the intruders entered the house in which the deceased and his friends were occupying.
