Report has it that Amasa Firdaus who happens to be a Muslim refused to remove her hijab before entering the International Conference Centre where the call to Bar ceremony is usually held. The graduate of Uniilorin had insisted on wearing her wig on top of her Hijab as she was already dressed in her new gown. Amasa Firdaus had vehemently objected to abide by the rules boastfully, claiming that the refusal by the authorities of the Nigerian Law School to call her to the Nigerian Bar is a violation of her right to freedom of religion protected by Section 38 of the 1999 Constitution of Nigerian as amended. One is not too sure whether Amasa may take up an action against the Council of Legal Education just as Kayode Bello did, it is however clear that her chances to be called to the Nigerian Bar is further postponed to next year; that is if she is tagged to be fit and proper and also if the same scenario does not repeat itself. According to an Instagram user who shared the story, Muslims are treated poorly in the legal profession and the case she highlighted was just one out of many.
