No one is above the law, not even Banky W who recently dared the Police by wearing a camouflage. There have been army brutality over purported civilian abuse of the camouflage outfit, otherwise known as camo.

Banky W decided to wear a Tee-shirt that has the camo mix that might have landed him in trouble if he was caught. We have had of how a crippled man was almost killed by soldiers for wearing the army colour.

The truth has been told over and over again about civilians using the sacred army colour. Brig. Gen. Sani Usman has spoken about the issue of the penal implications of civilians wearing army camouflage, “It is an offence. I expected journalists to have done their homework very well. 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, there is a clause:  “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”

Talking selfies is not included. We hope the singer doesn’t get into trouble soon.
