For barbing dread, a Nigerian dad thought it necessary to teach his grown-up son a lesson not to be forgotten in a hurry.
The Nigerian dad first confronted the young man, using cuss words on him for keeping a haircut he deems irresponsible for a promising young man.
He then took scissors and made a move to shave the haircut, but faced resistance from his son who kept dodging his father’s attempts respectfully.
Father and son went physical
In a short video reposted by Elufowora Eluyemi Lateef on Facebook, the father could be seen in a physical struggle with the young man.
At some points in the video, the dad smacked his son on the arm repeatedly as his attempt to shave the hair still wasn’t successful.
The boy’s mum could be heard in the background trying to wade into the situation.

Arakunrin Goke Olanusi said: “I remember when I went to cut my hair in a barber’s shop in 2002. I gave the barber a style which I admired during World Cup, and the barber did.
