VIDEO: Tension in Kwara over Hijab crisis as mission school owners send strong warning to govt

Baptist Conference, and Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA, have told the Kwara state government that they would resist the wearing of the hijab in their schools by all legitimate means and also demanded the immediate return of their schools.

Both Christian bodies, at different press conferences in Ilorin, the state capital, said they were not consulted before the decisions were taken, stressing that the state government was ill-advised in approving blanket wearing of the hijab by female students in grant-aided mission schools in the state.

Recall that following the controversy that trailed the wearing of hijab in grant-aided mission schools, the state government, last week, approved the wearing of hijab by female pupils of the schools.

Below video is what happened in Baptist Senior Secondary School, Surulere, Ilorin, the Kwara State Capital on February 29, 2021.
