About 50 female muslim students were locked out of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology International school in Ogbomosho Oyo state over the use of Hijab.

Reacting to the incidenrt, a teacher of the school said

“Since 2011, several letters of appeal had been written to the GC while we wait endlessly without response to our simple request. Our Muslim girls over the period have been using beret (cap) instead of Hijab, contrary to the Islamic dictate. 

“Our patience overtime as law-abiding citizens was premised on our belief that the management of the school will do the needful and give regard to the rule of law and provision of the Constitution guaranteeing the fundamental human right of everybody.
 

“Having waited endlessly since 2011, it was decided on the 4th of January, 2019 that our willing Muslim female children should commence the use of Hijab as the school resumed on January 7, 2019”

Ther principal, of the school Mr Ibrahim Animashaun in a telephone interview with Premium Times urged the students and parents to await the decision of the board of Governors of the school insisting that the status quo remains until the request is approved by the board.
