LASU Releases New Dress Codes for Studenst, Bans The Use Of Burka
The management of Lagos State University recently released new dress codes for students.
According to the newly released dress code the wearing of Hijab in the school premises is banned.
The law that bans burka is the 9th instruction of the 18 laws by the school. Amongst the 18 new laws, personally, I am not in support of the ban on the use of face caps, tattooing and the ban on the use shorts & knickers.
