ALLAH TAKE HER FROM US.
Dr. Hafsat Jagun of the Univeristy of Ibadan, Department of Veterinary Pathology. The current Head of Department (HOD) answered the call of Allah SWT and buried today 21st June, 2022.
She was an inspiration and role model to our daughters. She was 47years old. Her death is a painful loss!! May Allah grant her more Nuur in her grave and reunite us with her in Janatul-Firdaus.
Dr. Bode Badiru has this to say about our late Doctor:
“In the build up towards the showdown at ISI during the Hijab struggle, a major challenge confronting us was how to boost our daughters’ confidence. We knew it was not going to be easy standing against the tide created by the school’s peer pressure. Our daughters like other girls were seriously acculturated to the school’s world outlook.
We, therefore arranged a number of confidence-building sessions for the girls.
The last session was on the weekend preceding the D-Day and Late Dr. Afusat Jagun-Jubril was one of our guest speakers. She did a wonderful job at boosting the girls’ confidence. She used herself as an example of resistance to a culture alien to Islamic ideals and her academic standing as well as gift of garbs really impressed our girls.
When it was time for volunteers who would wear the Hijab on the D-Day to step out, most of our daughters in attendance stood to be counted.
May Allah count her contributions on that day as part of her good deeds on the day of reckoning”.
