Some students of Iwo Baptist High School wore church garments and robes to school on Tuesday in reaction to the court ruling allowing Muslim female students to wear veils (hijab) to schools in Osun state.
Now, the governor of the state Rauf Aregbesola on Tuesday stated that students who wore unauthorised cloths to any public schools in the State would be expelled henceforth.
Aregbesola stated at the commissioning of St Micheal’s Government Middle School, Ibokun while reacting to different choir robes and garments wore to Baptist High School in Iwo by some Christian students.
He said it was wrong and criminal for a section or group of people to have directed some innocent students to wear choir robes to schools against court’s judgment.
He urged whoever was not satisfied with the judgment to ventilate the grievance through legitimate means rather than trying to cause crises by resorting to self help.
According to him, “Government is not interested in any religion as being speculated. My goal is to improve education standard in the state.”
