Usman Baba, the inspector-general of police, has approved a new dress code for female officers in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

According to the police, the new dress code also allows female officers to wear stud earrings under their berets or peak caps while in uniform.

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the force spokesperson, in a statement on Friday, said the new dress code was unveiled on Thursday at a meeting involving the IGP and “strategic police managers”.

Adejobi said the new dress code was approved to guarantee gender inclusion in the police for “optimum output and professionalism”.
