His blac-green-red robe, on which was embossed a rising sun symbol attracted the attention of the officers. His derssing earned him the charge of incitement and of being a recruiter for IPOB, the separatist group.
Here are samples of the chic fashion that Enugu Metro readers and correspondents captured on the streets and on the internet.
The fashion creators quickly cashed in on the business following a great public debate on the legality and propriety of the dredd.
