We reported that the acting chairman of Okene Local Government and some community heads in the LGA are now cutting and shaving dreadlocks and tinted hairs. This action alone has proven to people that if the acting chairman happens to have more power than this, he is going to misuse it.
This action has caused panic and lots of Ebira people are scared of coming home as there is no respect for human right, even if someone is trying to curb crime stepping on people’s right is not the best way to go.
In a phone call conversation with one of the acting chairman’s aide (Bello Amoka), he tried to explain reasons for their actions, in as much as he tried his best to make their actions justifiable, it never stop the fact that it is illegal to cut people’s hair out of will, the acting chairman’s aide also said that 70 – 80 percent of the shaving victims has link to drug dealing and internet frauds.
