The Federal Road Safety Corps has suspended the sector commander in Rivers State, Ayodele Kumapayi for cutting female officers hair with scissors during a routine parade exercise.
Photos of the controversial disciplinary action had circulated on the internet on Monday.
The FRSC spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem, said that other officers who allegedly participated in that act have been suspended alongside Mr. Kumapayi.
He said the sector commander accused the female marshals of carrying long hairdo.
Mr. Kazeem said the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, ordered the errant officers immediate suspension pending investigation into the incident.
