Politicians and members of the public are warned strongly against wearing military uniforms and accoutrements.
The warning was issued by the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) through the acting Director of Information, Air Commodore Wap Maigida.
He stated that such was illegal and a clear abuse of privilege, adding that the Armed Forces of Nigeria remains apolitical and would not want to be dragged into politics.
Politicians and civilians were advised to stop wearing “camo” for political events and other engagements henceforth.
The statement said:
“Please note, anyone found culpable in this regard would be liable to prosecution”
