Civilians caught wearing military camouflage will be imprisoned – Army

Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, who’s the Director, Army Public Relations, has issued out warnings to civilians against wearing military camouflage.

Brig. Usman made it known in a recent interview made with our source, The Punch.

He said such kind of offence is punishable with a one-month prison term.

“It is a serious offence. I really expect that journalist should have carried out their homework seriously. The Penal Code is there. And I think the punishment is even mild.

“Knowing what the law says about wearing military camouflage is part of basic civic responsibility. I also know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

“However, for the benefit of doubt, please know that Sections 110 & 111 of the Nigerian Criminal Code Act states: Any person who unlawfully wears the uniform of forces, etc. L.N. 112 of 1964. 1967 No. 27(1) not being a person serving in any of the armed forces of Nigeria, wears the uniform or any part of the uniform of such forces, or any of the armed dress having the appearance or bearing any of the regimental or other distinctive marks of such uniforms; or (2) not being a person holding any office or authority under the Government of Nigeria or of any part thereof, wears any uniform or distinctive badge or mark or carries any token calculated to convey the impression that such person holds any office or authority under the government; is guilty of an offence and is liable to imprisonment for one month, or to a fine of N10, unless he proves that he had the permission of the President or of the Governor of a State to wear such uniform or dress, badge or mark or to carry such token: Provided that this section shall not apply to the wearing of any uniform or dress in the course of a stage play or in any bona fide public entertainment,” Usman said.
