A Nigerian human rights lawyer caused a stir at the Supreme Court in Abuja today, June 23, when he attended proceedings in the apex court in his traditional worshipper’s regalia.

According to the lawyer, who was also barefoot, a Supreme Court ruling indicated that Nigerians were allowed to dress in their religious garb.

Speaking with reporters, he explained that he made the decision to wear that attire in response to the Supreme Court’s decision from June 17 that permitted Nigerians to display their modes of worship, which includes the wearing of hijab in public settings.

According to her, the security personnel said she should leave because they serve alcoholic beverage in the cafe and alcohol is prohibited in Islam.

However, the person who had invited her to the cafe said she was sent out because her outfit was making the other customers uncomfortable due to the fact that there was a recent communal clash with shite in the community.

“I don’t care anymore, my efforts are wasted, let him struggle by himself!” the father was quoted as saying.

According to the child’s mother, her husband taught their son math for hours every single day for the past one year and his result really broke his heart.

She said he was mainly disappointed because their son has been failing consistently in school and has been scoring between 40-50 points in previous examinations.
