International School Ibadan shut down till further notice over Hijab protest

The International School Ibadan (ISI) has been shut down indefinitely following a protest by the Muslim students demanding that the management of the school allow them wear hijab.

The atmosphere in the school has been tensed for weeks following the faceoff between the parents and school management over their position that ‘no student would be allowed to wear hijab within the school premises’.
