Nationnewslead reports that The Kwara State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria has kicked against the state government’s approval of the use of hijab by female Muslim pupils in its public schools.

It said the new policy would “cause discrimination in schools and allow terrorists to easily identify our children and wards”.

The government had last Friday closed down 10 Christian schools in Ilorin, the state capital, following tension on the wearing of hijab in the schools.


But while announcing the reopening of schools from Monday, March 8, 2021, in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof Mamma Jibril, on Thursday, it said female Muslim students should be allowed to wear hijab in all grant-aided public schools in the state.
