3 students stabbed following Vandals, Conti, ATL clashes at UCC

At least three students have been stabbed Friday at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) following a clash between some irate students of University of Ghana and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Cape Coast.

A UCC student is reportedly paralysed after he was several stabbed while trying to enter his hall from night studies.

An eye witness narrated that some residents of Commonwealth Hall and Unity Hall who had been invited for a programme at ATL Hall ended up attacking residents of Oguaa Hall due to a misunderstanding.

The skirmishes, the witness said erupted when porters of Oguaa Hall refused to allow some naked Vandals, Unity and ATL students into the hall.

Several properties worth thousands of cedis belonging to Oguaa hall have been destroyed, the eye witness said.

The hall’s bus and vehicles belonging to some lecturers were also vandalised.

Meanwhile, a contingent of police and military personnel have been dispatched to the campus to prevent possible reprisal attacks and to maintain peace.
