FRSC Recalls Sector Commander who cut the Hair of Female Officers



The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has recalled Andrew A. Kumapayi, the Sector Commander of the Rivers State Command who cut the hair of female officers during an exercise to ensure they are dressed according to the prescription of the agency.

The Corps Marshal of FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi ordered his recall along with other officers involved condemning the photographs trending on social media.

The female officers were allegedly carrying long hair which was breaching the dress code and appeared too fanciful for the Kumapayi.

The incident, which started trending late Monday evening showed Kumapayi, using a pair of scissors to cut the female officials’ hair after reportedly inspecting their fingernails and uniforms.

In an interview with Punch on Tuesday, Bisi Kazeem, Head-Media Relations and Strategy of the Corps backed Oyeyemi’s decision saying it became necessary in order to properly investigate the matter.

    What is wrong with simply telling them to change their hair in accordance to the rules or they risk losing their jobs? What about simply pulling their hair up in a knot or bun? What about some disciplinary action e.g warning letter or suspension (if they refuse to comply)?
    What kind of degradation is this? Haba for crying out loud! This is wickedness and sheer disrespect. I doubt if they would perform this public show of shame on their male counterparts. This is wrong on all levels!

    Oh my gosh! What the eff is this?
    So if their uniforms were not the right specifications, he would have stripped them too? This is 100% dehumanising…I hope this is treated as a crime against humanity…how dare you?
    That’s how I read here last year that a bride’s hair was chopped off because of some stupid non-existent doctrine…the black man sha

    I can only imagine how they treat their wives and daughters. Stupid bunch. I hope they are demoted. Cut a woman’s hair, she’s not your wife, not your daughter. What happened to a warning. Dodoyo. They won’t do the work they were sent. Instead na over syllabus them go dey do.

    Hmmmm! Not even in my secondary school days would I submit myself to this act of babarism.
    This is so humiliating!
    How could he dare to touch a woman without her consent and even cut her hair!
    That sector commander must be severely sanctioned/demoted. This is the height of tyranny!

    This is abuse shame on this man. Military standard is that the braids must be in a bun which it was. By the way this is not the military so what exactly is the problem.

    This right here is a pure case of misplaced priority, it’s subjective, humiliating n dehumanizing not even from adult to kids much less from adult to adult..
    He purposely planned to make a mockery of them n create some entertainment. Where in that book of dress codes did the penalties state they publicly cut off their hair? Wat of the guys too or nobody broke a code?
    Pure misuse of power. Hair is political.
