The warning letter a Lagos church handed a Nigerian youth over his dreadlocks has sent netizens into a frenzy.
The man, @zaza_of_lagos, shared a picture showing his hair and the warning letter from The Church of Christ located in Jakande Estate, Isolo, Lagos.
The letter dated November 11 was addressed to Emeka Elumezie and was signed by two members of the church's disciplinary committee, a minister and an evangelist named Ifreke Umannah.
The church gave him a condition
While tackling Emeka for failing to 'live up to the Christian standard' in his appearance, the church maintained that he should cut off the hair if he still wants to worship with them.
According to them, they decided to write to him having exhausted the option of dialogue and did not see the desired change.
