The University of Education, Winneba is currently shut down following violent protests Thursday.
This follows a standoff between the students and the Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Professor Anthony Afful-Broni over the dismissal of some lecturers.
The students went on a rampage and smashed windows and glass doors of buildings on the Winneba campus of the university.
On Wednesday evening, they burnt tyres and clashed with the police, Joy News’ Richard Kwadwo Nyarko reported.
Announcing the decision to close down the school, Central Regional Minister, who is the Chairman of the Regional Security Council (REGSEC) said “every passing day, the level of insecurity [on campus] increases…”
“So on the advice of the Regional Security Council, we cannot continue to allow the university to be in session,” Kwamena Duncan said.
The students have until 6:00 pm Thursday to leave campus, the Minister added.
