Free for all fight: INTERCO turns into war zone in Koforidua

The 29th Annual Koforidua Zonal Athletics Competition ended in clashes between Koforidua Senior High Technical School (SECTECH) and Koforidua Technical Institute (KOTECH) with more than five students sustaining injuries.

The incident happened when students of SECTECH, who were handed the trophy for being the best male performing school started jubilating around the stadium.

This infuriated KOTECH students, who started throwing stones at them. An intervention by the teachers of both schools and three police personnel on duty could not calm the situation, leading to the injury of some students.

The incident spread to the main Koforidua -Mamfi highway, putting motorist at risk. who had to park to protect their vehicles from the flying stones.

Some students, who were terrified by the situation had to seek shelter in some kiosks along the main road, whilst some forced their way into the parked cars and under the cars to avoid the stones being thrown.

By the time police reinforcement arrived at the scene, the students had dispersed and the injured students were taken to nearby clinics at Adweso.
