Students of Covenant University were reportedly punished after school authorities conducted an inspection exercise after their chapel service.
Students who relayed the events on social media said their hair was shaved in the middle as a punishment for “keeping hair.”
A Twitter user, @1JayMun, said the school management complained the students embarrassed them by not bringing their bibles along to service.
The school management “decided to do something” he said. What they decided upon was an inspection exercise, checking for adherence to dress code, hair and beard.
