Photos: UEW campus clashes result in destruction of properties


Ghana has, once again, witnessed the result of excessive power play and a refusal to allow calm heads to prevail.

This time, the result has manifested itself on the Campus of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) as protesting students have destroyed several properties.

The protests have also led to a clash between the students and the police, leading to the disruption of academic work on the North Campus of the university.

Over the last three days, students of the UEW have been protesting against the dismissal of some lecturers by the university’s governing council.

The demonstrating students have described the dismissal of the senior members of the university as improper and therefore demanded their immediate reinstatement but the university’s council wouldn’t yield to their demands.

Adom News reporter, Kofi Agyei who visited the university’s campus Thursday morning has reported that the students were threw stones and vandalised properties.

“No building in the school is being spared as glasses of windows are being smashed as Police rubber bullets and tear gas to dispel the students, he reported.

About 15 students, according to Kofi Adjei, have been injured in the exchanges.
