Hijab Now Allowed In Lagos Public Schools

Female Muslim students can now use hijab in public schools in Lagos State, according to a circular by the state’s area unit of the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN).

A Lagos high court had in October 2014, ruled against the use of hijabs in schools, but the judgment was later upturned by an appeal court in July 2016.
Unhappy with the verdict, the state government took the case to the supreme court. It subsequently placed a ban on the use of hijab in August 2018.

However, in a new circular, the state government asked that the status quo be maintained in order to avoid contempt of court. It, however, said the hijab must be “short, smart, neat and in the same color of the uniform (skirt).
