The Kwara State Government has ordered the immediate closure of ten high schools in Ilorin, the state capital, pending the resolution of the hijaab crisis in schools.

 

A statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Department of Education and Human Resource Development, Ms Kemi Adeosun, said schools would remain closed until a decision on the use of the hijab was made.

Affected schools located in Ilorin according to a statement include C&S College Sabo Oke, ST. Anthony College, Offa Road, ECWA School, Oja Iya, Surulere Baptist Secondary School, Bishop Smith Secondary School, Agba Dam, CAC Secondary School Asa Dam road, St Barnabas Secondary School Sabo Oke, St John School Maraba, St. Williams Secondary School Taiwo Isale, and St. James Secondary School Maraba.

 

The statement said the closure came as a government committee comprising representatives of Muslim and Christian communities met today to resolve the differences between the two communities.

 

He said communications would also be released to inform members of the public about the development.

 

“The government wants peace and urges parents and religious leaders to refrain from doing anything or anything that may divide the two communities,” the statement said.

Recall that Muslim participants, including youth organizations and Muslim women, at a press conference on Wednesday called on the country’s government to win over former public schools in the state to allow Muslim female students to wear the hijab in their uniforms.

 

The Muslim community said that since the state government had taken over the schools, the former missionaries were no longer able to run the schools.
