Reading Time: < 1 minute

No fewer than five students of Isolo Senior Secondary School were sent out of school by their principal for putting on hijab to school.

After being sent out of school on Wednesday, the students converted a tricycle, popularly known as ‘Keke Napep’ to their classroom.

It was learnt that the Principal, Mrs. J O Sadare, had on Friday announced on the Assembly that students should not wear hijab to school.

After the announcement on Friday, some of the students wore the hijab to school and were given a letter to come with their parents on Tuesday.

When the students got to the school with their parents, the principal walked them out of her office after their insistence that their daughters must put on the hijab.

Narrating the incident, Amir (President) of the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria in Lagos State, Alhaji Saheed Ashafa, described the incident as disappointing in a press statement.

As we speak, the assistant head girl, who is one of the students who refused to put off her hijab has been removed and replaced.

Ashafa explained that the Lagos State Government has continuously disobeyed the Court of Appeal ruling granting the use of hijab in schools.
