Reports indicate that the students on Wednesday evening burnt tyres and crashed with the police personnel of which they gave couple of warning shots in an attempt to disperse the crowd.
The students are demanding the return of a number of dismissed lecturers and the immediate dismissal of the Vice Chancellor, Rev. Prof. Afful-Broni.
Mr. Kwamena Duncan, the Central Regional Minister and Chairman of the Regional Security Council (REGSEC) made it known that the level of insecurity on Campus increases each passing day. Hence the decision of the University’s closure became necessary.
“So on the advice of the Regional Security Council; we cannot continue to allow the University to be in session.” Kwamena Duncan stated.
The Regional Minister has told the students they have until 6:00 pm today, Thursday to leave Campus.
