@Mutahkolomi tweeted We urgently call on @JAMBHQ To cancel the CBT center in Covenant University now. We need to wake up and start fighting this kind of things. Yesterday wasyes daddy and today oyedepo’s covenant university stopped Muslim student from writing mockexams because they dress like Mary.

@Muslimnews_NG tweeted The gory and unfortunate incident occurred the same day Muslim students were denied and prevented from writing JAMB mock examinations at Covenant University CBT Center, Ota, over their use of hijab.

@fei_ _y I need people to understand that it is not an examination to gain entry into Covenant University, JAMB used the university as a center. I do not see why the university would act like this, why deny people from writing an exam you did not organise? A day exam fa.

@realuweez Replying to @SaharaReporters. It is very sad to see students treated this way because of their choice of dressing to take a Federal body exam.

Marketing Wizard @ebistoness tweeted,You’re only looking for trouble in the first place going to Covenant University with your Hijab, knowing fully well it’s a Christian school.. Leave Bishop Oyedepo alone. At least they didn’t stone her to death like you did with Deborah…
