The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has warned that it would not fold its hands and watch Muslim students being persecuted in Kwara State.

MURIC said that Kwara is a predominantly Muslim State, advising missionary school owners to take their business to Rivers State instead of trying to change the identity of Muslim children by force, adding that Governor Nyesom Wike is waiting with open arms to accept them..

The group was reacting to the hijab imbroglio going on in the State, wherein some public school teachers were said to have forced female Muslim students to remove their hijab within the school premises.

The development has generated controversy across the State, leading to the closure of ten schools by the State government.

Wading into the matter, MURIC has vowed to take all necessary constitutional measures to stop the oppression of innocent female Muslim pupils across Kwara State.

The position of the Islamic human rights group was contained in a statement issued by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.

According to MURIC, “On our own part, we will not allow… evil to prevail in Kwara as they did in some states in the South West on the issue of hijab.

“The authorities of those ten missionary schools should be ashamed of behaving like oppressors and slave masters.

“Yes. We say it boldly, loudly and clearly. Kwara is a predominantly Muslim state. It is absolutely absurd for any group to think it can subject Muslim children to oppression in such a place. Infra dignitatem.

“Take your missionary schools to Rivers State if you want to change the identity of Muslim children by force. Nyesom Wike is waiting with open arms to accept you.

“Afterwards he has illegally declared his state a Christian state in violation of and to the chagrin of Section 10 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But not in Kwara State.”

The group called on Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to shun all illegal, illegitimate and unconstitutional compromises that could provoke Kwara Muslims in the State.

Dean, Students’ Affairs, Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, Dr. Shola Eshiobo, has been found dead in his office.

A family source said the lifeless body of Eshiobo was discovered in his office on Sunday morning, after the wife raised the alarm that the lecturer did not return home from work on Saturday.

“He went to office Saturday afternoon that he was going to attend to some official matter. He normally goes to the office when he has so much to do. At about 9pm when he was not back, the wife started calling his line, but the call was not returned. She tried until late, still no response.

“The list of A and B grade students eligible for the UTME sponsorship will be released to schools through their emails.

“At the same time it will also be published on Principals’ WhatsApp platform.”

Mr Tilde revealed that the sponsorship is only a means of providing ease to students, saying that it would not be mandatory on the government each year.

“The payment of UTME registration fees I must hasten to say will not be a mandatory policy on government.

“Rather, it will be enjoyed by meritorious students any year the government is pleased to do so within the confines of its revenue.

“In other words, it is a palliative, or say incentive that will be given whenever feasible,” he concluded.
