A document which shows a new set of dress code at a Nigerian school has sparked some stir on social media.
The document was distributed to students of Federal Polytechnic Oko to make them aware of the dress code in the institution and social media users are outraged.
The document reads, War Against Indecent Dressing (WAID) in Federal Polytechnic Oko then goes on to list what is not acceptable in the tertiary institution as regards fashion.
For the women, the code bans things like skirt with slit above knees, off-shoulder dresses and tops, sleeveless dresses and tops, rugged jeans and low waist trousers, lengthy and coloured braids, coloured hair, long artificial lashes, bandana hairband, bogus fashion jewelries and more.
For the male students, they banned long and bushy hair/beard, braids, dread lock and coloured hair, rugged jeans, kaftan without trousers, inscription on hair cut, T-shirts and jeans with immoral messages and more.
Nigerians have reacted, calling the dress code “ridiculous”
