The University of Cape Coast has been directed by the Cape Coast High Court to reinstate the 22 executives of the Atlantic Hall who were rusticated for their alleged role in the violence that erupted during the Oguaa Hall Week Celebration in May this year.
The court on Friday, December 8, 2017 ruled in favour of the 22 students. Additionally, they are to be given GH¢10,000 each as compensation which is to be paid by University of Cape Coast (UCC).
The brawl on UCC campus involved students of Commonwealth Hall from the University of Ghana – nicknamed Vandals – and University Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology – nicknamed Katanga. The clash which saw one person paralysed and others seriously injured was blamed on the executive as they are said to have defied the university’s statutes with regards to hall week celebrations.
The invited students were seen as masterminds of the attacks with properties including cars being vandalised in the process, aside injuries sustained by some inmates of the Oguaa hall.
