In Ghana, the Inspector General of Police has assured students and school authorities of the Islamic senior High school that thorough investigation will be conducted to determine the circumstances that led to the police firing tear gas and live bullets at demonstrating students.
On Monday, at least 30 students were rushed to the hospital after police violently dispersed them while they were demonstrating over frequent road accidents in front of the school.
According to reports, the students blocked the road in front of their school in the course of their protest over frequent knockdowns.
When police arrived at the scene, they resorted to using teargas and live bullets, injuring the students.
During a visit to the scene of the incident, IGP Dr George Akuffo Dampare said the police's mandate is to protect lives and properties and not cause destruction.
