University of Ilorin, Kwara state on Monday 22nd of January banned the use of attachment and the fixing of any kind of human hair for female students.
According to the memo released by the Dress Code Committee of the school, female students should henceforth refrain from using weaves, attachments and must even cover their hair always. The school management wants students to stay as natural as possible as this is a way of being modest and better reflection of individual character and personality.
Here is the memo;
“Female students should avoid among other things, wearing Short, Skimpy dress, Skirts above the knee, Tight Trousers, See-through material, Un-packed hair, Fittings or Hair attachment. In addition, male students are also expected to steer clear sagging, tattered trousers and “unacceptable hairstyles.”
Students of the federal institution especially Christian students are of the opinion that the new Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abdulkareem Age is out to ‘islamatize’ the school.
