UK: Manchester University student ‘traumatised’ by ‘racial profiling’ incident

The University of Manchester has suspended security officers who were accused of “racially profiling” a student.

It comes after footage posted online showed first-year student Zac Adan held up against a wall by security guards who demanded to see his ID.

Mr Adan, 19, said he was accused of “looking like a drug dealer” by staff at Fallowfield halls of residence.

The university said it was investigating the “serious incident”.

“We are deeply concerned by these images,” it added in a statement.

“We have spoken to the student concerned, launched a full investigation and have suspended the security officers (without prejudice), pending the results of this investigation.”
