More than 200 University of Buea students have been arrested and many injured in what started as a peaceful protest yesterday. The students peacefully demonstrated on the university campus based on their grievances in the letter sent to the Head of State and the Vice Chancellor.
The students, in their letter warned the Vice Chancellor to stop manipulating them, and pledged their support for striking Common Law Lawyers and Teachers.
They also want the 10, 000F CFA penalty for late registration to be abolished, and also insisting that the annual Presidential grants should be given to all students from level 300.
The Cameroon police and military reacted brutally by opening fire on the demonstrators and using tear gas in an attempt to disperse them as they chanted different songs around the Campus. Kinnaka's Blog learned that about 200 students were arrested and others severely beaten and injured.
