Female muslim student of the University of Ibadan International School has been suspended for wearing Hijab to school.
Miss Ikhlass Olasubomi Badiru who is a student of the University of Ibadan International School has reportedly been handed a 2 weeks suspension notice by the school authorities for wearing Hijab to school in July.
Badiru was reportedly given the punishment after the disciplinary committee found her guilty of act of impudence to the school authority. Her letter of suspension which was signed by the Principal of the school Phebean Olowe on Monday, 30th September 2019, states that the student embarks on a two weeks suspension which takes effect from 7th till 18th October, 2019.
The letter reads;
“At the meeting of the Students Disciplinary Committee (SDC) looking into students’ misconduct held on Wednesday 28th August, 2019, you were found guilty of act of impudence to school authority.
“Your action contravenes the school’s rules and regulations. Therefore, you are to serve two weeks full suspension effective from 7th September 2019 to 18th September, 2019.
“Also, you and your parents shall be expected to report to the counsellor on Monday 21st October 2019 to present a written undertaking to the school to obey rules and regulations throughout your remaining days on the school.”
Recall that in July, a Muslim father called out the authorities of the University of Ibadan International school for asking his daughter to remove her hijab before going into the school premises. He insisted that the school was violating his daughter’s right.
He also claimed that she was sent back from school because she refused to remove her hijab even after her school fees had been paid for.
