On Friday, police used tear gas to disperse some 400 University of Education, Winneba (UEW) students who were participating in a demonstration.

With just over three weeks to graduation, the students were demonstrating over discrepancies in their results.

This came about as a result of administration and students not meeting as scheduled.

Some students blocked entrances to the university with tree branches and at first chased away security guards who had been sent in to keep order.

Their activity disrupted classes and some administrative work, compelling the school’s authorities to call for police assistance leading to the firing of tear gas.
