Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that some people were arrested after a football game was temporarily brought to a halt.
This was during the 26th edition of the Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) games held at the University of Ghana, Legon.
The referee officiating the football match between the University of Ghana (Legon) and the University of Development Studies (UDS), at a point, sent off a Legon football player.
This, however, did not go down well with some people who caused a brief pause of the game.
The suspects were consequently arrested by the officials of the University of Ghana Security Services (UGSS) and handed them over to the Legon Police.
It has been established that GUSA officials and the members of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) anticipated unruly behavior and beefed up security. The game continued after the brief break and Legon won the match 5:4 on penalties.
The relevant committees would review the match reports for further action to be taken as they prepare for the final match between Legon and the University of Mines and Technology (Tarkwa).
