They were all arrested and taken into police custody.

Richard Adu Darko, their lawyer, believes the students are innocent until proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction.

“These are KNUST students accused of rape,” he told TV3’s Ibrahim Abubakar after the hearing.

“Based on the facts presented to us, we don’t see rape, but that’s what they’ve been accused of, and once someone is accused, the law states that the person is innocent until proven guilty or the person pleads otherwise.”

“So, they are innocent until they plead guilty or a court of competent jurisdiction finds them guilty.” At the moment, this is a court of first instance, and they have been brought here to be remanded into lawful custody.”

Adu Darko, the students’ lawyer, said he will go to the “appropriate forum” to get bail for the six students so they can write their end-of-semester exams.

The hearing has been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 17.
