The peaceful demonstration led by a section of law students who are demanding a probe into the recent mass failure in the entrance examinations of the Ghana Law School was halted by the police after they opened tear gas on protesters in a bid to stop them from delivering their petition to the president at the Jubilee House on Monday, October 7, 2019.

A fellow lawyer and senior partner at Africa Legal Associates, Gabby Otchere-Darko has condemned the act by the police service; forcibly dispersing the protestors with tear gas.

Out of a total of 1820 student who wrote the exams, only 128 students passed the entrance exams. The protesters also claim that the Chief Justice who doubles as the Chairperson for the General Legal Council has been ‘inhumane’ in addressing their grievances.

In a post on his twitter page, Gabby, called on the IGP and his Regional Commander to explain the actions by the police. Several Ghanaians have also condemned the decision of the police.
