 Muslim leaders direct female students to start wearing hijab in Ogun schoold

By Ibrahim Adeleke

The League of Imams and Alfas in Ogun State have directed all female Muslim students in public schools to start wearing hijabs.

The league issued the directive at the end of its December meeting, held in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Tuesday.

The Islamic leaders said the declaration for the use of hijab in public schools in the state followed a recent meeting they had with the government on the need for their female children to adorn themselves with hijabs on the school uniform.

The league, in a statement signed by its Secretary General, Sheikh Tajudeen Adewunmi, said the commencement of the use of hijab starts January 9, 2023 when the students resume for their second term.

The league also said: “Only desiring and willing female Muslim students could adorn white colour shoulder length cape hijab as they resume for the second term of the 2022/2023 academic session on Monday 9th January, 2023 and henceforth without any fear of molestation or punishment.”
