According to campus-based Radio Universe, the clashes were between students of Commonwealth Hall and Mensah-Sarbah Hall over the route for the procession of their respective level 100s.

The two halls battled it out, throwing stones at each other, forcing companies who had set up their stands to showcase their products to run away for their lives.

A Toyota Corolla car was also set on fire during the clashes.
