Former President John Jerry Rawlings has condemned the police for brutalizing some law graduates who demonstrated on Monday to push for reforms in Ghana’s legal education.

In a tweet he wrote: "The heavy and high-handed manner the Police handled the demonstration by law students was most uncalled for. The conduct of the demonstration did not warrant the use of hot water cannons and rubber bullets".

The Police fired rubber bullets and sprayed water on the students, injuring a number of them.

Thirteen of the protestors were also arrested and later granted bail.

According to the Ghana Police Service, their demonstration was illegal.

Meanwhile, the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and other pundits have also criticized the high-handedness of the police.
