Court fix sept 29 to give judgement on hijab in school for female Muslim students.


Justice Modupe Onyeabor of an Ikeja High Court has fixed
September 26 to deliver judgment in a suit filed by the Muslim
Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) against the Lagos State
Government over the use of Hijab by female Muslim students in the
state’s primary and secondary schools.
The date was taken after the court heard arguments and the
adoption of written addresses from counsel representing the
students and the Lagos state government, Gani Adetola-Kaseem
(SAN) and the Lagos State Solicitor General, Lawal Pedro (SAN)
MSSN had dragged the state government to court over the
restriction of the use of the Hijab, on the ground that it violates
their fundamental human rights.
