In Osun State, Students Attend Schools In Church Garments

136

The Hijab crisis in Osun State takes a new dimension on Tuesday as the Christian Secondary School students in the state were seen put on church garments to their schools, in a defiant protest against the use of Hijab by female Muslim students, TheWillMagazine reports.

Christian students were seen attended Baptist High School, Adeeke in Iwo town of Osun State and Salvation Army Middle School, Alekuwodo, in the church robes.

The state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had earlier warned that Christian students in public schools will start wearing church garments to school if Governor Rauf Aregbesola goes ahead to implement a judgment by the state High Court legalizing the use of hijab by Muslim students.

According to a statement released last Friday by CAN Chairman, Elisha Ogundiya, said the decision was taken at an emergency meeting of the association’s executive committee, and heads of Churches held in Osogbo on June 7.

Meanwhile, Aregbesola on Tuesday declared that students who wore unauthorised clothes to any public schools in the State would be expelled.
