Students of two rival halls of residence at the University of Cape Coast Atlantic and Oguaa Halls, clashed on the campus Saturday, leading to severe damage to school properties.

 

The brawl, between Atlantic (ATL) and Oguaa Halls which is reported to have taken place in the early hours of the day was sparked by activities that were part of Oguaa Hall’s annual Junior Common Room (JCR) Week celebrations.

Students of the two Halls attacked one another with stones and other things.

The students also burnt two motorbikes during the fracas.

A statement from the university said some of the students were injured in the process.

Two years ago, a similar clash between students of the two halls led to the arrest and arraignment of 22 of them. One of the victims of that clash is still paralyzed, Nyarko reported.
