Soldiers in Nigeria are arresting men in dreadlocks and those with dyed hair in the Southern District of Abia.

The soldiers who were masked are reported to be arresting the men, cutting off their dreadlocks with scissors before zooming them away to an unknown destination.

The arrests that occurred over the weekend have prompted the Nigerian army to investigate the incident.

It is not the first time men in dreadlocks have been targeted in Nigeria with the police shooting dead a bystander in Lagos in March.
