Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, has ordered the recall of the commander of the corps in Rivers, Ayodele Kumapayi, for cutting the hair of some female personnel.
In an SMS to the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday, spokesman to the corps, Bisi Kazeem, said other officers concerned were also recalled.
Photos circulating on social media show Mr Kumapayi using a pair of scissors to cut the hair of some female personnel allegedly as punishment for spotting long hair.
The incident reportedly took place during the routine early morning parade in Port-Harcourt when the sector commander went round to inspect his officers.
Mr Kazeem said the recall became necessary to pave way for proper investigation into the matter.
He debunked a report by an online news medium that Mr Kumapayi had been suspended, saying, “it is a recall, not suspension.”
