The Ghana Police is going to hunt down the masterminds of yesterday's violent clashes reported at the University of Ghana campus.

A team of Police personnel have been deployed to prevent any reprisal attacks as investigations continue. It is our duty to find out those who set the car ablaze and what really might have sparked up these clashes and those who are found culpable will be brought to book,” Public Relations Officer at the Accra Regional Police Command, ASP Effia Tenge told Citi FM.

Violent broke out yesterday between students of Commonwealth Hall and Mensah-Sarbah Hall over the route for the procession of their respective level 100s.

The two halls battled it out, throwing stones at each other, forcing companies who had set up their stands to showcase their products to run away for their lives.

A Toyota Corolla car was also set on fire during the clashes.

ASP Tenge said the situation is under control but warns of reprisal attack.

"As we speak what might have degenerated into the disturbances is unknown and so far one Toyota Corolla which was parked at the entrance of the main Sarbah hall was set ablaze but also through the swift response from the Fire Service, the fire was extinguished," she added.

Meanwhile, the university's Vice Chancellor has promised to bring the perpetrators of the havoc to book.
