Nigerian Law School approves Use of Hijab during Call-to-bar Ceremonies

Following the controversy that ensued late last year when Nigerian law school graduate, Amasa Firdaus Abdulsalam was denied her call to bar for refusing to take off her hijab headscarf, reports say the institution has now approved the use of hijabs during the call-to-bar ceremonies and has also invited Amasa to attend the ceremony this July.

According to Twitter user @za_icon, The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) released a statement giving updates on the on-going court case with the institution fighting for the rights of Muslim students.

In 2017, The Nigerian Law School said that Amasa was breaking the dress code set by the university by putting on a hijab, hence prohibited her from the ceremony but she insisted on wearing the wig on top of her hijab.
