The protestors were calling for the reinstatement of the dissolved governing council with immediate effect stating that they do not recognise the interim management council setup by the government.

They also want the Vice Chancellor, professor Obiri Danso restored back to his position as soon as possible.

Last week, students held a protest that turned violent over what they described as oppression and tyranny by University management.

Government after meeting with the university's stakeholders decided to dissolve the governing council and set up an interim management council to run the affairs of the school for a period of time.
