- Members of University of Ghana’s Commonwealth Hall, and their counterparts from Katanga Hall in KNUST have clashed
- The clash which occurred moments before an inter-hall debate left one person injured
Members of University of Ghana’s Commonwealth Hall and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s Katanga Hall have clashed at Legon.
The clash has led to the injury of one person and the arrest of 10 students.
According Emmanuel Dzivenu, a UG student with the University’s radio station, Radio Univers, the injured student suffered severe injuries.
In an interview on Citi FM, Emmanuel noted that there is a heavy police presence on campus with many of students fearing further reprisals.
He further explained that the clash came on the back of an alleged attack of a Commonwealth student by the visiting Katanga students on the Legon campus.
It is believed the action of the Katanga students infuriated the Commonwealth students who descended from the hills to ‘fight’ the visiting Katanga boys.
But Emmanuel said the timely intervention of the police foiled the disturbance.
The students of Katanga Hall in KNUST are in UG for an inter-hall debate that was expected to take place.
