Nigeria university ‘bans tight-fitting clothes’


The University of Lagos in Nigeria’s commercial capital has banned both male and female students from wearing tight-fitting clothes, including trousers, skirts and blouses, local newspapers report.

They quote a management circular as also banning “all clothes which reveal sensitive parts of the body such as the bust, chest, belly, upper arms and the buttocks”.

The circular adds:

Students should maintain a clean and well-cared for appearance in all settings on campus. Wearing of tight, strapless and revealing clothes whose length are above the knees are inappropriate.”

This tweeter is not impressed:
