Nigerian soldiers force male passengers to cut their hair with the same razor on the highway




A Facebook user Ify Nnamani, has exposed some of the atrocities committed by Nigerian soldiers on the highway.

Nnamani said she witness a gross abuse of power during a recent trip. The Enugu based lady said she was returning from her village when the vehicle she was traveling in was stopped by some soldiers at a checkpoint.

One of the soldiers first reprimanded the driver for playing music which reminded him of his time in the 'depot'. Nnamani claim the gun-toting soldier then proceeded to ask that some male passengers who spotted an afro hairdo cut their hair.
He stood by and watched the passengers cut each other's hair with a blunt razor he forced the bus driver to provide. She 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 and asking what a guy is 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.
Post edit: This happened this morning, around 8:30 Am, along Eke-Affa road, Udi local government area of Enugu state. That place was usually a police checkpoint. Was a bit surprised to see soldiers today.
