Classes resumed on Monday at the 10 schools recently shut down by the Kwara State Government, over the controversy surrounding wearing of hijab by Muslim female students.
According to The PUNCH, students and teachers entered Baptist Secondary School, Surulere, and Cherubim and Seraphim College, Sabo-Oke, in Ilorin, the state capital, with little resistance.
Muslims and Christians had clashed at the Cherubim, and Seraphim college last week.
According to the newspaper, students who spoke expressed delight that learning has resumed.
Abdulrahman Abdulmumin, a leader of the Muslim Society of Nigeria (MSN) in Kwara, was quoted as saying that he was at Baptist Secondary School to ensure that the school obeyed the government’s directive on the wearing of hijab.
The Kwara State police command spokesperson, Ajayi Okasanmi, also confirmed that normalcy has returned to the schools and business community in the metropolis.
Meanwhile, following the crisis that trailed the issue of hijab usage in the affected schools in the state, the state government said it is gradually achieving its aim.
