The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has recalled Andrew Kumapayi, the commander of the Rivers state sector command, for cutting the hair of female officials.
Pictures of Kumapayi cutting the hairdo of the female officials during a general inspection had surfaced on the internet on Monday.
The inspection was carried out at the FRSC headquarters in Port Harcourt.
The female road marshals were reportedly accused of sporting long hairs which prevented their caps from sitting well on their heads.
Bisi Kazeem, FRSC’s head of media and strategy, on Tuesday, told journalists that Kumapayi and other officers involved in the act had been recalled.
Kazeem said that Kumapayi’s action was outside the mandate of the commission.
The FRSC official said that the commission will mete out appropriate sanctions to the officers involved after due investigation.
