Osogbo — Osun State High Court in Osogbo has given a visualisation in foster of womanlike Muslim students in open schools in a state reaffirming their right to wear hijab on their propagandize uniforms during propagandize hours. The box was instituted by Osun State Muslim Community opposite a State Government on Feb 14, 2013, seeking to urge a right of womanlike Muslim students in open schools in a state to use hijab on their propagandize uniforms.
Counsel to a plaintiff, Mr Kazeem Odedeji told a justice that womanlike Muslim students were being tormented since they wore hijab and urged a justice to strengthen their right to a garment.
But Osun State Chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had willingly assimilated a fit as partial of respondents, propelling a justice not to concede hijabs in schools, insisting that usually berets should be allowed.

According to a judgement, Falola hold that any act of molestation, harassment, woe or chagrin opposite womanlike Muslim students regulating hijab on their propagandize uniform, constitutes a transparent transgression on their elemental tellurian right as contained in Section 38 of a 1999 structure of Nigeria.
