A barber in Asaba was reportedly assulted today by some soldiers for cutting a wrong hairstyle on his daughter.
Activist, Prince Gwamnishu who shared the story online wrote;
“Received a call from a barber to please rescue his boy from further maltreatment by soldiers (fully dressed in Army Uniform).
We couldn’t get to the scene due to wrong address giving by the caller. (Apologies).
The man who led the soldiers took her daughter to the saloon yesterday to cut her hair and told the barber the hair style he want for his daughter.
Unfortunately, the barber couldn’t perfect the hair style and the man refused to pay, took her daughter to another barber shop.
At about 9:46am, this morning he stormed the barber shop with soldiers and assaulted the barber.
We asked the neighbors around and they gave same statement.
A case of Assault has been reported on his behalf by BBI at the Police station and also Army Mini barrack Asaba. #MoreUpdate
