the Baptist High School, Ejigbo, Oshun State and beat up the students and teachers for disobeying Rauf Aregbosula new education policy which merges the Christians and the muslins school in the state.

stopped some Muslim pupils from wearing the hijab.
The hijab is a scarf that covers the head and chest, specially worn by a Muslim female.

The Baptist conference
specifically said it would not allow hijab-wearing students in its schools.

On Monday,the attacked
students and teachers were said to have run for refuge at the palace of the Ogiyan of Ejigbo, Oba Omowonuola
Oyesosin. The monarch also helped to the rescue of the wounded principal from the
Muslin thugs.

There was also speculation that the muslin thugs were planning to set ablaze the United Baptist Church close to the school, this prompted
Some Christian youths to have mobilised to
defend the church.

This new education policy of Governor Rauf Aregbosula, if not properly manage might lead to a religions war in the state.
