On Monday morning, a Muslim student was turned back after she arrived the school premises wearing a hijab. Immediately, parents and students suspected to be from the University of Ibadan and who are of the Muslim faith, stormed the school’s main gate in protest.
Seeing that the situation was getting out of control, the principal of the school ordered that the school be closed until further notice, when all parties have deliberated on it and a unilateral decision is taken.
