One of the victims of the clash

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

A UCC student who was returning from night studies is reportedly paralysed as a result of several stabs he received from his attackers.

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

Although, he does not know the true cause of the misunderstanding, the witness said the incident became intense after some residents of ATL hall also joined the skirmishes.
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 all vandalised.
Meanwhile, a contingent of police and military personnel have been dispatched to the campus to stop any possible reprisal and to maintain peace.
