BREAKING NEWS:University of Education, Winneba closed down

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 three 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…”

What began as a normal student protest on Tuesday escalated on Wednesday as students on the North campus disrupted classes there and marched to replicate this at the Central campus.

They were stopped from entering the South campus by police reinforcements Wednesday afternoon. But the students retreated only to restart the distrubances Wednesday evening.

“So on the advice of the Regional Security Council, we cannot continue to allow the university to be in session,” Kwamena Duncan said.
