Awon Liberty has been dragged after he posted a picture of a female Corps member wearing a skirt instead of the trousers stipulated and issued by the NYSC. He was said to have posted this picture on various Christian Facebook groups and then wrote;
No to Lucifer’s Perception. No to Satan’d Deception. We the female say no no no to trouser.”
This post of his has generated various reactions on the groups and these reactions had a few in support while many argued that it’s not possible to engage in physical activities in orientation camps while wearing trousers.
One Emmanuel Emeng described the post as “Phariseeic in behaviour with a tint of fanatism. This uniform is an occupational clothing na, all things are lawful but not all are expedient na. Wear the trouser, you never commit sin. Dont be like the unbelievers who are not enlightened”
Another Facebook user, Toochukwu Ben Anefo, wrote:
