Two students of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) have been arrested for defying a 6 p.m. quit order following the shutdown of the school on Thursday, 14 March 2019.

The indefinite shutdown followed a three-day protest by the students and alumni against the Vice-Chancellor, Rev Father Prof Anthony Afful-Broni.

The Central Regional Security Council announced the closure on Thursday when the protest turned chaotic on the third day.

Central Regional Minister, Mr Kwamina Duncan told the media that: “On the advice of the Regional Security Council, we cannot allow the university to be in session.”

“Our report is this: every passing day, the level of insecurity increases or escalates,” he added.

Prof Afful-Broni has allegedly sacked 12 lecturers since he was sworn in as V-C by President Akufo-Addo in 2018.

The latest dismissals affected the school’s UTAG chapter president Dr Frimpong Kaakyire Duku as well as Professor Ephraim Avea Nsoh and Prof Sarpong.

The V-C cited misconduct and insubordination among other reasons for his action but the lecturers have denied any wrongdoing.

The students say they want their lecturers back.

The students have been given up to 6 p.m. to vacate the campus.
