According to the Nigeria Police, neither a man nor a woman should be detained because they choose to wear bum shorts, keep their dreadlocks, or decide not to wear a brassiere underneath their clothes.
The aforementioned social activities and traditions are not crimes, according to DSP Bright Edafe, the public relations officer for the Delta State Police.
In response to concerns from some citizens who claimed that they were being harassed by police officers and other security personnel in the State due to their appearances, he provided the clarification in a video clip.
Residents were exhorted by the Police PRO to resist being arrested and call him or ask to be escorted to the police station.
The public in Delta State is allegedly being harassed by vigilantes, ant-cults, hunters associations, and some police personnel, according to allegations Edafe has been getting.
“I want to be very clear that when it comes to dress code, inappropriate clothing—including males with dreadlocks, girls with bum shorts, and people moving without bras—is not a violation.
The state administration refuted that circular, thus no security agent may threaten you or detain you as a result.
