Worried by the growing concerns over indecent dressing among its students, the management of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area has waged a war against recalcitrant students, especially females.
As a result, the management turned back hundreds of students, particularly females, who didn’t wear bra and underwear on Friday.
The management said the war is also against indecent dressing among staff who wear torn trousers and braless clothes.
Stonix News gathered that the school management had warned repeatedly against indecent dressing and had even pasted posters warning against low waist, spaghetti, open chest, tear jeans, short skirt, bump shorts and the like.
The management, therefore, directed its security department to monitor students and staff members who would not put on underwear to give the school a bad name.
Enforcing the directive on Friday, the management prevented some students caught violating the rule from attending lectures.
It was gathered that students who live off-campus, on hearing the enforcement, mobilised themselves against the school management at the gate.
“I’m against such dressing trending on the campus and distracting students, teaching and non-teaching staff.
“It is not the right kind of dressing at all. How can a mature girl wear clothes, some are even transparent, without underwears?
“That is why men rape them. They even distract lecturers and others. I am not sure they are here to study. Well, they belong to the class of Yahoo girls,” a worried student lamented.
Speaking in support of his colleagues, another student, described the rule as an infringement on their rights as students.
“How would the school management know those who put on underwear and those who do not?
“To me, it is an insult and the school authority should stop the move immediately,” he warned.
Meanwhile, the Assistant Director, Public Relations of the institution, Manfred Oyibogbeye, confirmed the story.
He said “It is not a policy of no bra no entry. The school is only carrying out sensitisation to discourage indecent dressing.
“Later, there will be a measure to sanction those that go against the rules.”
