GIJ Students Locked out of Campus amid Students Unrest

Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism have been locked out of campus amid heavy security after students protested Sunday.

Irate students reportedly threatened to vandalise school property after they were barred from writing exams.

According to the students, the authorities are preventing them from writing their end of semester papers because the authorities say they owe school fees.

This, according to the students is however not true with all of them. Despite some of them owing as little as 20% of the fees, some say they have paid in full.

“How am I to blame if I have paid all my fees and the portal doesn’t open for me to register,” an angry student told Joy News.

Initially, the students said they were not interested in any violent protests but armed security was deployed to the campus to calm tensions after students threatened violence.

The authorities have not been available for any comments.

Meanwhile, Joy News’ Matilda Wemega reports that all papers for the day have been cancelled and students asked to leave.

A closed-door meeting took place between student leaders and the school’s management but details of the outcome are not available.
