The sacking, suspension and demotion of about 30 staff by the Governing Council triggered a spate of protests from the student body.

Chaos during protests on Thursday led to the indefinite closure of the school by the Central Regional Security Council.

The protesting students in demanding the reinstatement of the sacked lecturers called for the head of the Vice Chancellor, Reverend Professor Anthony Afful-Broni.
