The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Mr. Boboye Olayemi Oyeyemi, has condemned a photo trending on the social media concerning the cutting-off of the hair of female FRSC officials.

The photos, which started trending late Monday evening, show a man identified as the sector commander of the Rivers State Command of the FRSC, Andrew A Kumapayi, using a pair of scissors to cut up the hair of some female officials.

The incident reportedly happened during the morning parade when Kumapayi went round to inspect his officers and men.

He reportedly inspected their fingernails and hair, among other things.

The victims were lined up for the unusual treatment.

Confirming the veracity of the photographs, the FRSC spokesman, Mr. Bisi Kazeem, said the agency was already aware of the incident and that the corps marshal had already ordered an investigation into the issue.

Kazeem explained that though the FRSC had dress code for its officials, which, among others, forbids female officials from wearing long hair, Kumapayi should not have cut up the affected women’s hair as he did.

Kazeem said since it was still a developing story, he would not comment further until the investigation ordered by the corps marshal is completed.

He promised to give us the outcome of the investigations.
