Camouflage Brouhaha!


According to reports, the lady in this picture was forced to pull the camouflage she wore by soldiers in an unnamed Northern State.

Is this Right?I see Camouflage clothes outside Nigeria all time,why is Nigeria different?Please dont tell me it is to avert crime,when they are the same ones who aid robbers!

This has got to stop!

Actually, unless she's new to that part of town you dare not wear the military camouflage outside your home. Sorry for her sha

The truth is I have never cared or bothered to know why the nigerian army laid down such rule. This is what majority know.
Well, all I know is this lady right here deserved any embarrassment she was caused. Like, what is so difficult in heeding to a simple instruction knowing that these people have no chill?πŸ™„πŸ˜

SANDY YO said...

Tankio! Its either you wear it just indoor or till you travel out. Simple!

The General's Wife said...

Remain scared and don't wear it. Unless u want ur pic up there like that lady.

@Monkey,that's how u rock it. Wear over there and dump it there before coming back. Cos if u yield to the temptation of coming back with it,you wil be tempted to wear it.

Say No to that temptation and dump it before coming back homeπŸ˜‚

Na Me Talk Am!!! said...

Even if you have it in your shop for sell, if they see it they will take it. Happened in my very before some years back when the owner of the shop refused and said they must pay for it first come see beating. Other shop owners came out to support him can't remember how it ended

Anonymous said...

The law is the the law. Everyone in Nigeria is aware that it's illegal to wear a camou. By breaking the law... Wat u see is what you get. Even if it's allowed overseas don't mean we should allow it here. We know ourselves and how we can abuse things. We hear stories everyday of how people impersonate police and other armed force agency. Don't wear it is don't wear it. There are other type of clothes one can wear. She wore that clothes and left her house in defiance. I ain't sorry for her.

DON™ said...

I will never wear camou, not even in my dream. I hate embarrassment.

Anonymous said...

@monkey ur right,but the law dint say it that way, wearing camou. Is not against the law, but wearing it full kitted i.e boots, beret with the crown on it, the rope by the hand belt, name tag and all that.if u do so ur impersonating.

Rowland Dominic said...

I have never been more proud of the Nigerian Army. Sometime in 2014 I was on my way to Terminus from Birkin Ladi and at a security checkpoint they stopped us and we were been searched ehen they stopped another truck where a white man an his police men escorts, they asked them to come down and asked the white man if he was a military man because he was wearing a camouflage shirt and he said No there and then they asked him to take it off, and his escorts wanted to say shit, their Army commander cocked his gun at the police man and said 'Dan iska walahi say another word.'

I fell in love with that Military man that day.
It is WRONG to wear such in Nigeria. Shikina, but all this sexybootylicioustwisters no go hear word.

The General's Wife said...

The truth is that she may even be ignorant of this.

And Some may argue that Ignorance is not an excuse but then,is stripping her naked the best way to go about it? Just look how she is pleading like she actually didn't know about it.

Kai and she even tie camouflage head scarf join?😳

Them don see meat those soldiersπŸ™„

This online stores should stop selling it please.
I'll just start wearing inside my house. I won't even step outeidr the gate with it. Before I'll make headlines here 😭😭

Anonymous said...

The law is the law why not save yourself the embarrassment. And knowing fully well that the soldiers are crude and are always on the lookout to embarrass civilians at the slightest given opportunity. A lot of people like the camouflage but avoid it like a plague Afterall it's not the only clothes that you can make a statement with. But people will not listen......Now she has made the fashion statement and has gotten her 5minutes of fame and 5years of shame.

BLOGLORD (MVBM) said...

The lady up there seem to be fully kitted with camo.
Her bandana, top and the almost off trouser.

Bad market

Apart from the stripping why is the soldier looking at her fresh thighs. He come even bend sef. Haba.

Emeka Iwuji said...

There are laws which make it illegal for civilians to wear army uniform:

Section 110(1) of the Criminal Code makes it unlawful for any person who is not serving in any of the armed forces in Nigeria to wear the uniform of the armed forces, or any part of the uniform of such forces, or any dress having the appearance or bearing any of the regimental or other distinctive marks of such uniforms. Camouflage is a part of the military uniform and so it falls under this law. However, there are 2 exceptions: i) if it is worn with the permission and consent of the President or Governor of a State, ii) that it is not applicable if it is worn in the course of a stage play or in any bona fide public entertainment. (emphasis ours). The penalty for this is 1 month imprisonment or a fine of N10 (Ten Naira)
Section 251 of the Criminal Code states that any person who, not being a person serving in any of the armed or police forces of Nigeria, wears the uniform of any of these forces, or any dress having the appearance or bearing any of the regimental or other distinctive marks of any such uniform, in such manner or in such circumstances as to be likely to bring contempt on that uniform, or employs any other person so to wear such uniform or dress, is guilty of a simple offence, and is liable to imprisonment for three months or to a fine of N40 (Forty Naira). No exception here, so it would seem that this section is used as a way to limit the exception in Section 110 i.e. you can wear the uniform in the course of bonafide public entertainment…but not if it brings the uniform into contempt.
Section 110(1) is replicated in Section 79 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011, however the penalty for the offence is 2 years imprisonment with no option of a fine.
So, in answer to the question, yes there are laws which prevent civilians from wearing army camouflage.

Ajagbe adeola hannah said...

But I wear my camo skirt without ish in Lagos. It is well.

Emeka Iwuji said...

The Military cannot unilaterally constitute the Prosecutor and the Judge by charging a person for wearing army uniforms and has no jurisdiction to deal with civilians. If a civilian contravenes the law of Nigeria, in accordance with the rule of law, such a person is charged to court and not disciplined the same way the military court-martials can deal with their military personnel who are subject to service law.

It is, therefore, important that the public respects national symbols of authority including the use of uniform accoutrements because it’s a symbol of es­prit de corps which distinguishes the members of armed forces from the rest of the population

Ahhh, even if u beg me to wear I will not o! I won't forget what they did to me at forces avenue because of camo cap, till today I can't do 10 squats cos they rearrange my knee with one kick.

Anonymous said...

Stella with another stupid comment. How many countries have you been to that you saw civilians wearing military gears? Do you know if it is against the law in Australia, Austria, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Finland, South Africa, and many other countries? Perhaps you saw it only in one or two countries and started making a generalization. Even if it is allowed in Germany or wherever you have seen civilians wearing it, does it mean that because it is allowed there that it should be in Nigeria? Of course you bad mouth Nigerian soldiers as if German soldiers don't rape women in refugee camps, or the US and British soldiers don't massacre innocent citizens in cold blood in Iraq and others.

Adadioramma said...

And what did the law says about soldiers bending down to look fresh thighs? Is that offence punishable or not punishable?

Adadioramma said...

That is bad men. The owner of the shop actually displayed it there to attract them to buy not for intimidation. This country ehn.

A lot of you are ignorant and don't know your left from your right that is why Nigeria is in shambles. So let's assume it is a crime or illegal to wear camouflage, the punishment for it is death abi?
Somebody cocked his gun and that seemed right to You? Mstchew.

I am an officer's wife, I don't allow my hubby do gragra to civilians when we are together. You will hardly know sef that he's a soldier. He's always calm when we are together. The only time I saw my hubby's madness to a civilian was when I was molested in the market. You know those igbo nwaboyi boys that usually drag customers to their ogas shop saying "my colour come buy from me ". That's how this guy pulled me and i cautioned him to stop but he insulted me and groped my boobs. Jisos I was speechless, with tears in my eyes, I entered a customer's shop and called hubby telling him what happened. Na so oga picked his boys and stormed the market. Before the guy would know what was happening, I pointed him out and you should imagine what he passed through. Till tomorrow I pass that line in the market, the way they respect me ehnnn, I have never seen anybody in that line of the market dragging or pulling ladies again

Oh Lamee said...

But have seen Nigerian artistes wear this and they don't get crucified?....smh

Anonymous said...

The person who wrote this comment is actually foolish. The German army cannot operate outside German unless for peace purposes. Secondly in all the civilised countries you mentioned, you can wear camo etc for all you want. The problem with us Africans is that we cannot give logical reasons for things we do such as beating people up for wearing camos. Like mumus we just continue doing nonsense and that's why we cannot compare to any of the other countries you Meade mentioned.

Anonymous said...

This is the problem with Africans on a whole. You cannot logically explain bull crap and like a monkey you come out to support this madness. What is the logical explanation for this law, when was it imposed and for what reason? Is this barbaric law still significant. Anyways in the next 25 years or so, all you azzoles would be wearing camo fighting in the bush based on your messed up minds and where you all are heading. Yup you heard me right, years ago if they would have told you suicide bombers should be in Nigeria, you would have laughed, in the next 25 years the war is sure coming as you fools have no sense at all. I'm naija by the way but done with you morons.

Ashley, really? Try wearing the black with the police stripes or the white with the marks and icons associated with the navy. BTW, I'll advise you to NOT wear camouflage as long as the "dumb law" is enforceable

Rowland Dominic said...

I wonder how you some people, would come under anonymous and say crap. What that act simply meant was that he is an Army officer that doesn't condone nonsense. So in your village everyone that cock gun will shoot bah. Oh no need assuming it's actually illegal. People like you should go back to Colonial Era.

Broomstick said...

Now people want us to blame the military men because it is a woman. How many have accused these military men when they do same to a man? I don't want to be automatically favoured because of my sex. When something is against the law, it is against the law. She was fully dressed from top to bottom in camo. She's apparently pleading because she's been asked to strip. Sad show of shame but who took the picture?

I remember the day I and a friend went to one of the satellite towns in Abuja just to get a signature on one document. The army guys flagged us down at a checkpoint and saw my friend's short. Na so we park. We spoke all the grammar in this world nothing. I'm an army child, you should know better toh. Imagine pulling shorts and continuing into a town with whatever he had under. We begged to be allowed to go and buy shorts and come back and he finally agreed. We got to the town, got the signature and started coming back. If you see the way my friend sped past the checkpoint ehn. At a point I thought they would pursue us. Whatever law it is, I think it has outlived its usefulness if any.

Aproko said...

My reply is for anon 17:33. Are you serious? Most countries don't care about who is putting on their uniforms it's nothing to them. Even if it is I doubt they'll strip someone on a public road for that. The Nigerian military system is fucked up I tell ya, first of fucking all no military personnel is supposed to lay their fucking hands on a citizen no matter what, all the need to do if need be is to call the cops. That should be a police problem but no they wanna take laws into their hands for what I ask? In Nigeria military personnels beat up individuals at every given opportunity that is not even okay they are not supposed to do that. I'm well travelled and I know most countries don't condone that. So think before u type.

Anonymous said...

they'll just harass someone without knowing if they military or not. They better not try me when I come home.

Ronalda said...

Wearing or having any military paraphernalia on your person is actually a criminal offence punishable under both the criminal code and the penal code. You don't have to wear the complete uniform, wearing only a cap with the camouflage pattern will suffice. I think it's a misdemeanour which carries a prison term of at least 6 months or a fine.

The problem with these military men is, they are so used to corporal punishments and drills that they have very little regard for the decency of the due process of the law, especially under civilian rule. They are hard wired to be judge, jury and executioner. What they ought to have done was to arrest the lady in question and hand her over to the police, who would then charge her to a magistrates' court where she will be duly prosecuted.

What that soldier did right there is a gross infringement of her basic fundamental human rights. If she can get a good lawyer (a human rights activist, preferably) and if she is motivated to follow the case to its legal/ logical conclusion, she will be well compensated and the soldier in question, sanctioned. We are not under the military regime where such barbaric and indecent acts will fly indiscriminately. True, she committed a criminal offence but the greater offence is usurping the inherent powers of a court of law and corrupting the powers further by striping a lady of her dignity, both literally and figuratively.

Well, let this be a lesson to all. Ignorance of the law may mitigate punishment but it, in itself, is no excuse.‎

Broomstick said...

You're being serious? Which military person do you know who does this? Don't comment for the sake of commenting biko

2 anonymous stop fighting.
The fact is that to wear an outfit that looks like or to imitate the Nigerian army is against the law. Its in the constitution. HOWEVRr the fine is 20 naira oR two weeks imprisonment. The law is so old it has not reflected the new value of money.

1. It says nothing about beating.
2. It means you can wear other camo like blue, pink, grey etc because Nigerian army is green.
3. Just because it may be ok in other countries doesn't mean it should be OK here we should follow our own laws Stella.

Stop civilian mistreatment!!!!
