Residents of the SRC Hall of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) woke up last Thursday morning to a scary spectacle of a calabash containing two eggs and kola nuts, with a piece of paper with the inscription: “Warning!!! For your Good, Step Aside. Danger!!!”.
The calabash was positioned at the entrance of the door to the room of one of the aspirants to the position of president of the UCC branch of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS).
The development had sent tongues wagging and caused apprehension within the student body.
Some students believed that the items were packaged as juju by one of the students contesting the position of NUGS representative of the hall to brighten his chances of winning.
Many students could not fathom why a student should employ spiritualism in an internal contest.
When the Daily Graphic visited the SRC Hall Friday (March 1, 2019), there was uneasy calm among some of the students as they were found in groups discussing the incident.
Some of the students said the incident should be treated with the contempt it deserved while others believed that it was a serious development that must be investigated.
When contacted, the Chairman of the SRC Hall, Dr Michael Boakye-Yiadom, confirmed the incident and said an emergency meeting was scheduled for Friday evening to deliberate on the matter.
