Kwara State Government has finally opened the 10 grant-aided mission schools that refused to go by its directives on reopening for lessons following controversy over use of hijab.
Radio Nigeria’s correspondent who witnessed the opening saw government officials using Hacksaws to cut chains and locks on the gates in the presence of armed security men and officials of the state Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).
