In Ibadan: UI explains why it suspended Muslim student

The Board of Governors of International School, Ibadan (ISI), University of Ibadan, has declared that the two weeks suspension of a female Muslim student, Miss Ikhlass Olasubomi Badiru, has nothing to do with wearing of Hijab.
DAILY POST recalls that the school had last week said it suspended Badiru because she was found guilty of act of impudence to the school authority. The two weeks suspension takes effect from 7th to 18th October

The school in the suspension letter signed by its Principal, Phebean Olowe, and addressed to Badiru, insisted that the disciplinary committee looked into Badiru’s action and found her guilty of act of impudence to the school authority, though there were allegations by parents of the affected student, other Muslim parents in the school, Islamic organizations including the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) that she was suspended because of Hijab.

But, the School Board of Governors while reacting, affirmed that the suspension of the student has absolutely nothing to do with Hijab.

The board in a statement made available to Dailypost on Wednesday insisted that Badiru was suspended for wearing unauthorised cardigan.

Dailypost recalls that the use of Hijab has since November 2018, been generating a lot of controversies in the school, which made parents of some Muslim students to jointly sue the school, its principal, University of Ibadan and Chairman of the Board of Governors of the school who also doubled as Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the university.(Dailypost)
