“Let me also assure parents that contrary to what they must have heard or read in the dailies or in the news, no student has been badly harmed or dead in the clash.

“But we are cooperating with the police to ensure that the incident does not happen again,” he added.
Several properties were left vandalized and some students injured as a free-for-all fight erupted between students of Atlantic Hall (ATL) and Oguaa Hall of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) Friday night.
It is unclear what triggered the fight but an eye witness said it started after some students of ATL beat up another from Casely Hayford Hall (CASFORD).
The CASFORD student had come to visit a friend at Oguaa Hall, which was marking its Hall Week celebration.
The incident sparked a free-for-all fight, leading to the vandalization of property.
