Court stops suspension of UCC students

The Cape Coast High Court has granted an interim injunction filed by lawyer of the suspended Students at the University of Cape Coast.

The court presided by His Lordship Justice William Boampong also stated that the students must be allowed to take part in the ongoing second semester exams.

The Alumni of the Atlantic Hall dragged the management of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) to court over its decision to suspend 22 students of the hall.

Management of the university over the weekend found the students culpable over clashes that ensued in the university during a hall celebration by the Ogua Hall residents – leading to the stabbing of three students in March.

They were thus rusticated to serve an academic ban ranging from a period of two to four semesters.

They were made up of 17 males and five females with nine in their final years, another nine in third year while two are in their second and first years respectively.
