The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has vowed to dismiss or demote female officers if caught violating the commission’s dress code. This comes a month after Rivers State Sector Commander, Andrew A Kumapayi, and other senior officers were recalled after the commander was seen at a parade cutting off the hair extension of two female corps for not abiding by the dress code rules.
Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja on the update of the case of the officers whose hair extension were cut off, FRSC Corps Marshall, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi told The Guardian that strict measures will now be applied if anyone is being caught violating commission’s dress codes.
According to him, anyone found contravening the rule would be dismissed or demoted.
‘If I catch any officer again dressing improperly against our dressing codes, we would de-rank her or make her face stiffer sanctions like dismissal,’ he stated.
Prodding further, Oyeyemi said the commission will no longer tolerate the violation of its dress codes.
‘As long as I am privileged to be the Corps Marshall, I will also not condone indiscipline or indecent dressing. It is absolute nonsense and irrational behavior for any officer to dress as if they are going to a fashion parade, for your braided hairs to be touching your waste and coming to work in a uniform organisation like this. Nobody will close his eyes to such, so all must be warned.’
