A Nigerian lady has taken to her twitter page to express shock after security officers at a government office refused her entry into the office complex over ‘indecent dressing’.
According to the lady @1feyinwao, this same government office requires married women to provide a letter of permission from their husbands before they can travel outside Nigeria.
Sharing the photo of herself in the outfit she was wearing, she wrote:
I was refused entry into a government office today because my dress was “indecent”. This is the dress I was wearing.
This same government office requires married women to submit a letter of PERMISSION from their husbands to travel. This is Nigeria.
I asked the security guard what was so indecent about my dress, and he said it was short. An older lady wearing a fitted dress that was the same length as mine walked interjected, I told her not to bother and I left.
She then further decried the rate at which women are being disrespected in the country
That’s how my defender would’ve been kicked out too. Let’s not pretend that women have any rights or are treated with respect in this country. ESPECIALLY young, single women. At this point, I can’t even get angry.
