Pro-hijab protesters have invaded the University of Ibadan International School after the school’s authority shut down the premises indefinitely.
The School Authority on Monday shut down the premises to put an end to violent clash between pupils and a group loyalists of the Muslim Parents Forum who campaign the use of hijab by female pupils.
According to the PUNCH, the Chairman, Governing Board of the school who is also the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics) of the University, Prof. Adeyinka Aderinto woke up to hear that some protest card-bearing youths had laid siege to the gate of ISI.
Some of the inscriptions on their placards include, “Our hijab, our pride, their fear;” “How does my hijab affect you;? “Hijab;” etc.
