UCC suspends hall week celebration after bloody scuffle on campus


The University of Cape Coast (UCC) has with immediate effect suspended the celebration of hall weeks on campus.

The decision was taken as a result of last Saturday dawn’s clashes between students of Atlantic Hall and Oguaa Hall.

The violence, which brought the Oguaa Hall Week celebrations to a halt, led to some students sustaining various degree of injury and properties vandalised.

Until the announcement, Casely-Hayford Hall was next to observe their week-long celebration.

The decision to suspend hall week celebrations takes immediate effect, according to the Registrar of the University, John Kofi Nyan.

In a notice to the university community, Mr Nyan indicated that the Students Representative Council (SRC) week celebration is also affected.

Meanwhile, management noted that frantic efforts are being put into bringing the perpetrators of the weekend’s violence to book.

Students have also been urged to desist from “any violent and unlawful actions”.

Police have also been deployed to maintain law and order on campus.

It is unclear whether an arrest has been made.
