Two UCC students rusticated over bloody clashes

Two final year students of the University Of Cape Coast have been rusticated for two academic semesters for their involvement in last Friday’s clash at the school.

The two are Minta Augustine Awotwe of the School of Business reading Business Management Studies and Prince Agyemang Kwabena who is also reading Bachelor of Commerce at the School of Business.

Three people were fatally stabbed on Friday following clashes between students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Ghana, Legon, at the Cape Coast University.

The bloody chaos erupted after students of the Commonwealth Hall of Legon and Unity Hall of KNUST, who had been invited for a programme at UCC, had a misunderstanding over an issue.

Several cars were also vandalized during the chaos.

A statement from the university’s administration signed by the director of academic affairs of the University Jeff Teye Nyame indicated that the two business students stay clear off the campus until the beginning of the 2017/2018 academic year.
