UEW students involved in Asuboi accident were not on official trip – PRO of UEW

The Public Relations Officer of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) has intimated that the students who were involved in the Asuboi accident were not on an official trip.

According to Ernest Azutiga, the school gathered that the students moved out because of the break-in academic activities.

“Most of the students had gone home, some also had gone for weekends and because they felt that they had some numbers, they decided to organize themselves so they could get a bus that could get them to school but it wasn’t an official trip,” he said.

He noted that the school would “contact families on what has happened for them to also take account of it and come over to see whatever support they can offer.”

The School authorities said information available to them indicates that two of the 35 students who were supposed to be on board the bus are yet to be found.
