This comes after the students from the University in the southwest, an English-speaking part of the country, on Monday embarked on a peaceful demonstration.
The students were demanding that the payment of CFAF 10,000, instituted by the Rector, for penalties for failure to meet the deadline for payment of tuition fees online, be terminated. They claim that they received an Academic Excellence bonus of 50,000 FCFA.
The students also demanded that lecturers, who speak and teach only in French, be fired.
In the video, French-speaking policemen were seen forcing four students to lie in the mud. One of them, female, was forced by a Police officer to stick her face in the mud continously .
