Oba’s wife advocates flogging, arrest of indecently dressed youths

The wife of the Ekiti monarch called on women to monitor their children and ward’s dressing at home before they leave the house.

The wife of Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Bosede Adejuyigbe, on Wednesday advocated a law to punish indecently dressed youths in Ekiti.

Mrs. Adejuyigbe, who made the call at a law week organised by female lawyers in the state, also stressed the need to establish a dress code which would be backed by legislation.

She said that the legislation would empower law enforcement agents to sanction anyone found guilty of indecent dressing.

“Any girl or lady dressed indecently should be flogged and arrested by the police, the Oba’s wife said.

She called on women to monitor their children and ward’s dressing at home before they leave the house.

In her contribution at the occasion, wife of the Oluyin of Iyin-Ekiti, Olori Josephine Ajakaye, encouraged ladies to be guided by the fear God in their dressing.

“The way women or ladies are dressed at any point in time, tends to influence the way people relate to them.”

“So, be guided by the fear of God in your dressing,’’ Mrs Ajakaye said.
