Students of the Ghana School of Law led by the SRC president, Jonathan Alua, yesterday embarked on a demonstration to register their displeasure against the mass failure recorded in this year’s entrance exams and to demand reforms in the legal education system.
The issue of mass failure has been happening for some time now, and in order to fight against it, the student body came together and hit the streets of Accra to protest.
However, the demonstration did not end well as some of the protesters including their association’s president, Jonathan Alua were arrested by the police when they attempted to present their petition to the president at the Jubilee House.
It was also reported that the police fired tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets at the protestors.
The Ghana Police Service has, however, justified the use of what it calls reasonable force to disperse the agitating law students.
Well, a member of the protesters, Prince Ganaku who witnessed the incident took to Twitter to give a full account of what happened.
