Black smoke was billowing from the University of Papua New Guinea Uniforce security base at Waigani today after cars were set ablaze.
A UPNG staff person said that at least three vehicles at the security base had been set on fire, while the base itself was allegedly ransacked by angry students.
The staff claimed that some students tried to prevent their colleagues from the School of Natural and Physical Sciences from attending classes.
Uniforce stepped in to prevent that from happening when the group of students retaliated.
However, a UPNG student leader said that Uniforce tried to force some male students to attend classes. The students were at the buai market at the clinic area when the guards ordered them to stop whatever they were doing and get to class.
