Kwara State government has again announced the extension of the closure of 10 Mission Secondary Schools in Ilorin, the state capital.

A statement released early on Monday morning and signed by Mrs Kemi Adeosun, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development said that the schools should remain closed because of security reasons.

The government shut the 10 schools belonging to some Christian Missions in the state on February 19, 2021, following a crisis on the wearing of Hijab by Muslim female students who are attending the schools.
