The Lagos state police command spokesperson, Bala Elkana, has said that Tattoos and Dreadlocks are strange to our culture and is part of the reason why most people who rock them are being harrassed by law enforecement agents.

In an interview with BBC pidgin, Bala who condemned the recent killing of a football fan, Kolade Johnson in the state, said police officers usually harrass any youth wearing dreadlock or having a tattoo on them because most of the cultists that have been arrested wear dreadlocks or have tattoos on them. He said that the police has overtime seen a connection between cultism and those that rock dreadlocks and have tattoos on their body

According to him, “tattoo and dreadlock are strange to our culture especially for Nigeria. Most times when you arrest cultists, many of them have signs on them”
