The Ghana Police Service has released thirteen students who were arrested over an illegal demonstration embarked on by some law students.

The peaceful demonstration led by the 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.

Before going to the jubilee house, they went to the Attorney Generals Office, picketed at the Court complex and proceeded to the Ghana Bar Association where they presented a petition to them.

However, on their way to the Jubilee house, they sat in the middle of the streets and some pelted the police with stones and offensive weapons.

In a statement from the Public Relations Unit of the Ghana Police Service said,it had no option than to spray cold water and fire bullets to disperse the crowd.
