POLICE have assured students attending the University of Technology of their safety if they want to return to classes.
This follows a row between security guards and a group of students yesterday.
Lae Metropolitan Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr said police were called into the campus by Vice-Chancellor Dr Albert Schram “to ensure the safety of staff and students”.
He said their presence in the campus was not to create a standoff with students but to ensure students resumed lectures without intimidation and harassment.
Wagambie said a group of students had been threatening those wanting to return class.
“Many students want to return to classes however they have been harassed by a group of students who still want to continue boycotting,” he said.
He said police would now remain on campus to guarantee the safety of students and staff.
Wagambie advised students to stop bringing non-students into campus who might create more trouble.
Lae Chamber of Commerce president Alan McLay said the situation at Unitech was calm.
