Lagos assembly sets up ad-hoc committee to investigate Aisha Alabi’s case

 

The Lagos State House of assembly, on Monday, set up a four-man ad-hoc committee to investigate the alleged victimisation of Aisha Alabi, a JSS 1 student of Kadara Junior Grammar School, Ebute-Metta by her principal, Mrs E.C Ukpaka, over hijab.

Speaker, Adeyemi Ikuforiji announced the setting up of the committee after the house discussed the petition forwarded on the issue by the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) Lagos State Area Unit during plenary.

It would be recalled that the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) Lagos State Area Unit had raised the alarm over the issue and also staged a peaceful protest to Governor Babatunde Fashola’s office in Alausa on Thursday February, 28, 2013.

During the debate, the Chief Whip of the House, Hon. Dr. Abdurrazaq amongst other Members of the House, however, pleaded caution over the issue saying that both sides of the story should be heard.

‘We have lived harmoniously for so many years, despite our religious differences, let’s not make judgement before investigating,’ Balogun said.

However, Speaker, Ikuforiji said that nobody should discriminate against anybody on the basis of religion, saying that it’s a matter that cannot be tolerated in Lagos State.

The ad-hoc Committee, which comprises Hon. Abdurrazaq Balogun, Hon. Adebimpe Akinsola, Hon. Alawiye-King and Hon. Rufai Adeyemi has one week to report back to the house.
