Muslim Clerics Storm Osun Schools to Enforce Hijab on Students

Hijab Osun state
Islamic clerics on Monday visited two schools in Osogbo, Osun State capital to enforce the court judgement that female Muslim students should start wearing hijab to schools.

The clerics numbering 25 stormed St. Charles High School in Osogbo and Ife Oluwa Middle School at around 8am to enforce the court order.

The principal of St. Charles’ High School, Mr. Anthony Famoriyo, reportedly informed them that he could not fulfil their request because he was yet to be directed by the Ministry of Education to that effect.

Famoriyo, when contacted by journalists, said he told them that no teacher would prevent any student from wearing hijab the moment they receive such directive from the state government.

However, Islamic followers forcefully enforced the use of Hijab on those identified to be Muslim girls in the school.

Academic activities in the school were disrupted as the group also stormed classrooms to stop teachers on duty.
