Students accuse the army and police of raiding their halls of residences and beating whoever they found in addition to destroying their property.

The guild vice president Judith Nalukwago told journalists that some students are in the university hospital while others have been admitted to private hospitals outside.

She condemned the brutalization of the students, breaking of halls of residences by security operatives who also arrested several of their colleagues.

The students are now demanding the release of their colleagues.

Meanwhile, over 15 journalists who were on Friday covering the students’ press conference at the university were also teargassed, beaten on the directive of the vice-chancellor, Professor Barnabas Nawangwe’s personnel assistant Mr Gordon Murangira. Mr Murangira was also seen taking pictures and videos of journalists who attended the press conference.
The journalists were forced out of the press conference by security personnel and ordered to delete what they had recorded.
There have been reports circulating indicating that one of the soldiers died at Tue university as he pursued students last night.
However, the army dismissed reports as fake news.
