The Federal Road Safety Corps has suspended its Rivers state sector commander, Ayodele Kumapayi, for harassing female officers.
Kumapayi, while meting out disciplinary action on some female officers, controversially cut their hairs during a routine parade on Monday.
The FRSC spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem, confirmed Kumapayi’s suspension on Tuesday morning while addressing the media on the issue.
He said that other officers who allegedly participated in that act have been suspended alongside Kumapayi.
He said the sector commander accused the female marshals of carrying long hairdo which however, was not a crime under any law in Nigeria.
Kazeem said the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, ordered the errant officer’s immediate suspension pending investigation into the incident.
