We Banned Hijab To Ensure Unity In Schools -LASG Discloses

The Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Ade Ipaye has applauded the judgment of the Ikeja High Court to uphold the ban of hijab in primary and secondary schools in the State.

Ipaye said that the Lagos State Government is in the forefront of human rights promotion in Nigeria and will not deny its citizens their religious rights.

Justice Modupe Onyeaboha had on Friday, October 17, 2014 dismissed and ruled against the Muslim Students' Society of Nigeria (MSSN) suit against the Lagos State government, saying such practice would affect the secular nature of the State.

In her ruling Justice Onyeabor said Section 10 of the Constitution made Nigeria a secular state and that government must maintain neutrality at all times and therefore had a duty to preserve the secular nature of the institutions concerned.
