Police are firing warning shots and teargas at the University of Education Winneba (UEW) in a bid to push back student protestors who have since Tuesday been demanding the reinstatement of some dismissed lecturers.

At least 10 people have suffered varied degrees of injuries and currently receiving treatment at the university campus clinic, one of the students who witness the incident told afrikabaweb.com

Personnel from the Formed Police Unit called in as reinforcement have clashed with the protesting students who are throwing stones in response to what they have described as police highhandedness in the peaceful protest.

Students are destroying school properties and pulling down billboards on campus, a witness to the scene reports.
