These unknown armed thieves took away the personal belongings of some students who were learning at that time in preparation to sit for their exams to end the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic year. In this light, the students have charged on school authorities demanding for better campus security to help protect the lives of the learners on campus.

In effect there has been a trending hashtag on social media #UCClivesmatters, this is in accordance with the student’s cry for help.

There have been a series of attacks by thieves and criminals around the campus and this recent one seems to have hit on the alarming bells of the students hence calling for proper security.

Taking to social media with the hashtag #UCClivesmatters some students and netizens registered their strong displeasure at the recent and previous attacks on the University.

They called on the University Authorities to take their lives into consideration by at least providing the security men on campus with the appropriate equipment instead of torch lights as their weapons.

Service Personnel falls from 4th Floor

The authorities of the University of Ghana have called for calm after a man believed to be a national service person, reportedly fell from the 4th floor of the Mensah Sarbah Hall to the ground.
He is reportedly receiving medical care at the Legon Hospital.

He is said to have fallen from the fourth floor of the Mensah Sarbah Hall Annex A at dawn on Friday, April 23, 2021.

The Dean of Students, Prof Godfred Bokpin has called for calm and said investigations were underway to establish what really happened and that the facts would be put out.

“What has happened has happened, but the issue is being investigated, the police, the hall authorities, we are all involved trying to get to the bottom of it, but whilst we are at that, we will urge every student to be calm and keep to their core activities…, and they should not feed into the rumor making rounds but very soon an official communication will be issued by the university.”

The victim, whom some have identified as Wahab Abdulai, is said to have slipped and fallen from the balcony.

He is expected to be transferred from the Legon Hospital to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for further treatment.

Court dismisses Rasta student’s application seeking to force Achimota School to admit him

Court dismisses Rasta student’s application seeking to force Achimota School to admit him

The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court has dismissed an application to force Achimota Senior High School to admit Oheneba Nkrabea, a Rastafarian student, temporarily while waiting for the final determination of the substantive case in which he is fighting the school for not admitting him because he wears dreadlocks.

In his case, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, through his father, argued that he is disadvantaged, as he remains at home waiting for the final decision of the court on the substantive case while his colleagues are in school.

But the court, presided over by Her Ladyship Gifty Adjei Addo on Monday, 12 April 2021, said forcing the school to temporarily admit the student would be prejudicial to the substantive matter.

In her reasoned opinion, expediting the trial will be in the interest of the student, as the mandatory injunction would have allowed him to be in school for only 10 days.

She, however, granted an order for the first respondent, Achimota School, to file its response seven days after being served instead of the statutory 21 days.

Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea dragged Achimota School, the Board of Governors of Achimota School, the Ghana Education Service, Ministry of Education and the Attorney General to court, praying the Human Rights Division of the High Court to compel Achimota School to admit him for the purposes of his education.

He was denied admission for having dreadlocks.

The country is divided on the issue. While some argue he should be given admission, others say it will set a bad example for the future.
