Accra-based Starr FM reports that the clashes started after students of Katanga Hall from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who were lodging at Sarbah Hall at the University of Ghana for a debate were seen on a video assaulting a student from Commonwealth Hall.

Their counterparts from the Commonwealth Hall, popularly known as Vandals, did not take lightly to the said video and descended on Sarbah Hall to rescue their colleague.

But in an attempt to free their colleague, the Katanga and Sarbah students resisted, which led to some bitter exchanges.

Reports suggest that the situation could have gotten worse had the Police not arrived on time to restore calm.

Meanwhile, 10 of the students involved in the clashes were arrested are currently in cells, whiles the injured student has also been admitted at the Legon Hospital.
