Generally, it is considered illegal for any person who is not a member of the armed forces to wear the uniform or apparel which is exclusive to the Nigerian Military. Section 110 of the Criminal Code makes it an offence for any person who is not serving in any of the Armed Forces in Nigeria to wear the uniform of such force, or any dress having the appearance or bearing any of the regimental or other distinctive marks of such uniforms.

The Nigerian Armed Forces is divided into three parts. They are the Nigerian Army, The Nigerian Navy, and The Nigerian Air Force. Where any person who is not a military officer wears their uniforms, he or she would be punished with an imprisonment term or a fine. However, under Section 110 of the Criminal Code Act, there are two situations where a civilian would be allowed to wear a camouflage or military uniform. They are:

1. Where a person wears a military uniform with the consent of the President of the country or the Governor of a state.

2. Where a person wears the military uniform during the course of a stage play in any bona fide public entertainment.

Apart from the two instances given above, where any person wears the military uniform, he or she would be liable to an imprisonment term of a month or a fine of ten naira.

It should be noted that a separate punishment is to be prescribed for anyone who wears the military uniform in contempt. Under Section 251 of the Criminal Code Act, any person who wears any of the uniforms of the armed forces which bears their distinctive ranks in such manner or circumstances as to bring contempt on that uniform would be guilty of an offence. Upon conviction, such a person would be liable to an imprisonment term of 3 months or a fine of forty naira.
