Marriage registrar at Ikoyi registry refuses to wed couple because of groom’s dreadlocks (video)

Today, Sept. 29, at the Ikoyi Registry, a wedding was temporarily halted after the registrar refused to officiate the couple’s wedding unless the groom fixes his hair.

Dreadlocks are worn by the groom. The registrar instructed him to cover his hair when he appeared for his civil wedding with his customary hairdo because the dreadlocks bothered him.

Before the registrar agreed to marry him, Ubi Franklin, who was present as a witness, had to go out and get a traditional headgear for the groom to wear.

The guy is seen tucking his thick dreads into the cap to cover them so he may get married in a video uploaded online.
