At least 25 Muslim clerics in Osun state on Monday morning stormed St. Charles High School in Osogbo and Ife Oluwa Middle School to enforce the June 3rd court judgement that female Muslim students should start wearing hijab to schools.
The clerics went to the school around 8am to enforce the court order, This Day reports.
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 newsmen inside the school, 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.
Recall that the state’s Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) recently carried out its threat to order Christian students in the state to wear their church robes to school.
