SocialMediaTrends: Nigerians react as hijab causes controversy in Kwara school

Published

on

Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, was again embroiled in religious controversies on Wednesday following violent clashes between Christians and Muslims over the use of Hijabs in Government Secondary Schools.

The violence was said to have erupted after school officials at Baptist School, Surulere, barred female students wearing Hijab from entering the school.

The decision to deny Muslim students access into the school premises caused the pandemonium which led to violent face-offs.

The development had since sparked debates among social media users, as many Nigerians queried the state government’s decision to impose the wearing of Hijab in Christian mission schools.

Many also faulted Governor AbdulRaham AbdulRazaq for exhibiting religious bias through his purported silence since the chaos erupted in his state.

Recall that the said school alongside nine others had recently recovered from two consecutive shutdowns by the state government over Hijab disputes.
