Kwara Muslim youths Monday asked the state government to pay N113, 388,000 as blood money (diyyah) to compensation for the alleged killing of Habeeb Idris during the hijab crisis in Ijagbo, Oyun local government area of the state.
The youths rejected the N1m the state government offered the deceased as family as compensation.
Addressing newsmen in Ilorin, the state capital, the chairman of Kwara Muslim Youths, Ustaz Abdurrazzaq Al- Amin also asked the state government to award adequate, reasonable and fair compensation to the 10 fatally injured Muslims during the Ijagbo hijab crisis
He said the government should take fully responsibility for the hospital bills and incidental expenses of the injured Muslims during the Ijagbo crisis.
The Muslims youths chairman further demanded the followings: ” The government should avoid in its official and unofficial communications referring to the public schools as mission schools. This is very contemptuous of courts’ judgements/ orders. In the eyes of the law, there is nothing like missionary- owned schools in Kwara state.
As a solution to the lingering crisis, the leader of the Muslim youths demanded for: “Full implementation of the judgements of the Kwar State High Court and Court of Appeal as well as the consequential circular issued by the state government on the ownership of the schools in general and the unhindered use of hijab in all government owned- schools in particular.”
