A Popular Nigerian hairstylist Idowu Oluwatosin Olakunle took to his Instagram to how he was locked up for hours by Nigeria Police force for looking like a gay person, too slim with hair in perfect locks and was locked up from 9am – 4 pm, it gets worse.
He was stopped in Ojota in Lagos, Nigeria, he wrote on his Instagram, and was asked to introduce himself.
