General Lucky Irabor, Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, has outlined why civilians should not wear military camouflage.

In an interview with Channels Television on Friday, January 14, the CDS reacted to the crackdown on civilians wearing military uniform. He explained that due to the current security situation, those who are not members of the Defence Headquarters are not permitted to use military equipment (DHQ).

According to Irabor,

“The criminals among us have had to take advantage of the military, police, and other security agencies’ gear to perpetrate crime.

“We live in a peculiar society – I do not need to restate what the make-up of our society is, what the level of discipline is generally.

“And when you compare it (Nigerian structure) to some places where a few individuals believe that whatever practice goes on in those societies should be replicated here, the other elements of social life in those societies; they do not bring that to bear right here.”

He also reassured Nigerians that the DHQ will continue to take proper steps to ensure that the military’s uniforms do not cast a negative image of the military.

Irabor added; 

“Ordinarily, we will be glad to see that our symbol (gears) is being used for good causes.

“A good number of those who use them have used them for ignoble causes and so, that brings us to a state where you begin to make certain assumptions.

“So, it is better for you to be safe first, then by virtue of your investigations, you can exonerate those who are using them for good causes. This is where we are.”
