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 clash which saw one person paralysed was blamed on the executive as they are said to have defied the university’s statutes with regards to hall week celebrations by inviting students of the University of Ghana’ s Commonwealth Hall and others from the University Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
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.
The students were rusticated before invited to meet the disciplinary committee of the school.
Their pictures, he argued, were also plastered on the school’s notice board before they were invited to appear before the committee.
The court awarded cost of GHS220,000 against the university. Each student is to receive GHS10,000 as compensation.
