A corps member, Tolu Ekundayo who graduated from Lagos State University (LASU) has been decamped from the NYSC orientation camp in Sagamu, Ogun State over her refusal to wear trousers. The Camp Coordinator disclosed that she has been putting on skirts since she reported to camp, contrary to camp rules. Ekundayo however said her refusal to wear trousers has to do with her faith which she cannot compromise. She said at age 10, God spoke to her through a scripture to abstain from men's wears and she has taken cognisance of it since then. Her church, Faith Apostolic Church has waded in and may take legal actions. Ekundayo reported to camp on March 6 and was decamped 2 days later.
