UEW protests: 2 students arrested for failing vacate school premises

Two students of the University of Education Winneba have been arrested for defying a directive to vacate the school's premises.

The school was shut down on Thursday, March 15, 2019, after violent student protests after which students were given up to 6:00 pm to vacate the school.

According to the Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Oppong, the two male students were arrested in the halls after police went for routine checks on the campus.

She explained that the two were arrested because there were some activities going on after the six pm deadline which could be linked to these two individuals.

“We went round to close the lecture and also their halls [of residence] and in the process, two people were still there after 6 pm and there were some activities going on that we think they could be linked to so that is why they were picked,” she said.

They have been handed over to the Winneba Police Command as investigations continue.
