Yesterday several Ghanaian law students embarked on a peaceful protest demanding a reformation in Ghana’s legal education as according to them years, Ghana Law school has been characterised by unwarranted mass failure of law students.

The student marched through principal Streets of Accra heading towards the Jubilee House to register their displeasure to the President.

Ghana Police officials present however, insisted they had no permit to proceed and resisted the protesters who had gathered at Afrikiko, about a 100 meters away from Jubilee House.

The peaceful demonstration then metamorphosed into a violent one as police officers began shooting at the protesters with rubber bullets. They also bathed the students with water cannons both hot and cold.

Some students were severely injured by the rubber bullets as they sought shelter in the Canadian Embassy.
