The police have clashed with protesting students of the Islamic Senior High School on Monday 13 June 2022 injuring dozens, eyewitnesses said.
The students mounted roadblocks in protest of a speeding vehicle that knocked down a teacher of the school over the weekend.
The officers, according to eyewitnesses, reportedly fired warning shots before they could allow free flow of traffic on the Abrepo-Ampabame stretch in the Bantama Constituency of the Ashanti Region.
There was vehicular and human traffic on that stretch for more than an hour before the police were called in to clear the road.
Academic work has been grounded as parents frequent the school to check on their wards, amid heavy security.
In an amateur video circulating on social media, students could be heard shouting: “We want justice, we need peace” as armed police men try to keep calm on campus.
The police are yet to officially comment on the incident.
