Last month, there was controversy and clash of interest in Kwara state when officials of Saint Anthony Secondary School prevented Muslim female students from gaining entrance to the school claiming that it is a missionary school, which led to closing down of about ten schools in the state.
Three weeks after, the state government reopened the schools, and violence erupted in Ilorin, the state capital. The violence started after Christian officials of Baptist School, Surulere disallowed the girls in Hijab from gaining access into the school. This did not go down well with Muslim parents, leading to arguments and eventual clash.
The situation grew worse as angry Christian and Muslim faithful threw various objects including stones and plastic chairs at themselves. Security operatives were needed to dispersed the violent crowd and had to call for reinforcement before the situation was put under control.
This clash will come as a setback and disappointment for the government and other stakeholders because several meetings were held between Muslim and Christian leaders to resolve the issue with the government temporarily closing down the ten schools until the reopening on Wednesday morning.
