A student of the University for Development Studies ( UDS ) , Wa Campus , is said to have exchanged blows with his lecturer in an examination hall.
The yet -to- be identified student was among some second- year students from the Faculty of Integrated Business Studies of the university writing a semester examination.
Per the university ’ s examination rules, students are required to show their identity cards before taking their seat in the hall but the student refused to comply.
An eye witness told Joy FM that a mobile phone and some materials forbidden in the examination hall were found on the student whilst he entered the hall , necessitating a further search on him but which he refused .
Efforts to retrieve the phone and the forbidden materials from him also proved futile , the eye witness who is also a student narrated. Proving difficult , he was asked to show his student ID card , but , again, he refused .
“So they told him to walk out [ but] he said he won’ t go out, ” the eye witness recounted. He said a lecturer who felt the student was being intransigent confronted him .
According to the eye witness , the lecturer first pushed the student , who retaliated. The lecturer then hit the student and again he replied in equal measure .
“The master slapped him and he also blow the master so they started fighting , ” the eye witness narrated . The development compelled the centre coordinator to suspend the examination until further notice .
But Rafik Salaam said information he gathered from the school indicated that Monday ’s incident was not the first time the unidentified student had behaved rudely towards an invigilator .
