Muslims And Christian Clash As Kwara State Government Reopen Christian Schools Over Hijab Controversy


Christians and Muslims clashed in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara state, on March 17 after the state government reopened 10 Christian schools that had been closed due to a hijab controversy.

Government-funded Christian schools had previously been closed due to a disagreement over Muslim students' use of the hijab.

However, after the schools were reopened in accordance with the state government's directive today, March 17, a fight erupted.

The brawl erupted after Christian officials at Baptist School, Surulere, barred Hijab-wearing girls from entering the school. This did not sit well with Muslim parents, resulting in arguments and a confrontation.

The situation worsened as enraged Christian and Muslim believers threw rocks and plastic chairs at one another.

To de-escalate the situation, security personnel stationed near the school had to call for reinforcements. Tear gas was used to disperse the crowd.
