Personnel at the University of Cape Coast [UCC] Security Section are inadequately resourced to effectively deal with the kind of robberies reported from the University community and its environs.
This was revealed by an intelligence officer with the UCC security section, Warrant Officer Moses Frempah in an interview on the Atlantic Wave on Thursday.
Mr. Frempah says they are only armed with truncheons, whistles and torchlights and these cannot counter the weapons wielded by the criminals.
The section also has just two vehicles serving the entire university community making them unable to respond promptly to crimes when they are reported.
The University of Cape Coast is surrendered by about seven communities where some students seek accommodation from private developers.
