Three students were seriously injured in a clash between students of the University of Ghana (UG), Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Cape Coast (UCC) on Friday evening.
The students are said to be in critical condition.
Reports said two students were stabbed in the stomach while the other was brutally beaten when entering his hall from night studies.
A hall master was also hit in the head by a stone.
According to the sources, the students from KNUST and UG were invited for a “power night” event at ATL Hall of UCC as part of activities to mark the Hall Week celebration.
The source explained that a misunderstanding ensued between the students when porters of Oguaa Hall stopped some naked vandals from the UG, Unity and ATL Halls from entering the hall.
The students began throwing stones at each other and in the process several properties, including the Bus of Oguaa Hall and vehicles belonging to some lecturers, were destroyed, the witness said.
According to the sources, some of the irate students turned their anger on the police and military personnel who were dispatched to the campus to maintain law and order. The police cum military personnel were, however, able to restore calm on the campus.
Calm has been restored and the students were going about their activities peacefully.
