A  group of youngsters in the Ubeji village in the Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, under the auspices of the Ubeji Youth and Employment Development Organization, have taken strong measures against females who engage in indecent attire.

According to Punch, members of the youth group had started clamping down on suspected offenders by subjecting them to strokes of the cane or in the alternative imposed fines on them.

The execution of the “War Against Indecent Dressing” campaign among young women in the neighborhood, which started on Monday, July 3, 2023, reportedly generated fear among females in the area.

It was discovered that some of the victims were forced to pay penalties as high as N10,000 or endure 40 cane strokes.

When the news broke, the youth group’s secretary, Stanley Bomele, informed the media that the exercise became necessary due to the provocative ways ladies dressed in the community.

“Most of the girls had gone haywire in the name of fashion with some of them almost going about in nudity, which is irritating and does not tell well of the community,” he added.

Bomele attributed the major cause of assaults and sexual harassment in the area to indecent dressing among young ladies.
