A lady returning from her village has narrated how soldiers stopped their bus and forced travelers with Afro to cut their hair.
She also reported that they questioned the driver for playing a certain kind of music, before asking the men in the bus with full hair to cut every other person’s hair.
Sharing photos of the male passengers being forced to cut each other’s hair with razor blade, Ify Nnamani wrote:
This here, is so wrong on many levels
I’m traveling back from the village and these soldiers stopped our bus. First, this one questioned our driver for playing music that reminds him of his days in the ‘depot.’ Then he asked these three guys to come down for carrying full hair. Now they are making them barb each other with the blunt razor they forced our driver to provide.
I don’t know when carrying full hair or playing music in the bus became illegal that these soldiers had to detain us for over 30 minutes. I was so angry on behalf of those guys, especially as some of the older folks in our bus kept saying they deserved to have their hairs cut that way. What is a guy doing with full hair?
All these blatant abuse of power and bullying of innocent civilians by the military can’t be allowed to continue unchecked.
