The management of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) has banned female students of the institution from wearing heavy makeups or hair extensions; even as it prohibited them from wearing hair attachment, and any form of Brazilian hair among others.
In a memo dated January 22, 2018, the university declared that anyone that fails to adhere to these instructions will be sanctioned according to the school’s rules and regulations.
The school said male students must not weave their hair or sag their trousers.
It will be recalled, the management of the varsity had shared this notice on its website in 2017;
I don’t know why I was angry that Unilorin was called an unfortunate school walahi.
How can a federal institution ban attachments and hair extentions??
This is the height! Or not. Hijab will soon be compulsory. Unfortunate Lots! pic.twitter.com/wCyL0xlP20
