Youth corps member expelled from camp for refusing to wear trousers


Tolu Ekundayo, a former student of the Lagos State University, Ojo, Lagos State, has been sent packing from the orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps in Sagamu, Ogun State.
The Camp Co-ordinator, Franca Ifon, was said to have taken the decision to de-camp Ekundayo because of her refusal to spot trousers like her colleagues.
She is said to have been putting on skirt since she reported to camp contrary to the camp rules.
Her reason had to do with her faith.
Speaking to The Eagle Online on Tuesday, Ekundayo said she reported to the camp on March 6 and was decamped on March 8 at about 11pm as a result of her mode of dressing.
When probed further on her religious inclination, Ekundayo said she had to leave the camp because she could not compromise her faith.
She said: “I had a dream when I was 10 years.
“God appeared to me through a  scripture that as a child of God, I must abstain from men’s wear and since then I have taken cognisance of it.
“And my parents knows this as well.”
Ekundayo’s church leaders, led by Apostle Paul Taiwo Adenuga of the Faith Apostolic Church, Egbeda, Lagos State have opted to pursue the issue legally.
