The Nigerian army, like all other government employees, is subject to a code of behavior that must be followed at all times, especially when wearing the military uniform. As a result, according to veteransunited.com, we’ll take a look at some of the laws that govern them, as well as how far the Nigerian Army has tried to follow them.
1.) Putting your hands in your pockets: Nigerian soldiers, like most soldiers across the world, are strictly forbidden from doing so. This is because it minimizes the likelihood of a military action being taken in an emergency and also demonstrates that the soldier is relaxed and not on high alert.
2) Walking while using a cellphone: Officers in the Nigerian army are not permitted to use their cellphones while walking, although the soldier may stop and take a call before continuing on his or her journey. This legislation also applies to persons who want to eat or smoke cigarettes while strolling; however, doing so while wearing an Army uniform is strictly prohibited.
3.) You cannot carry a branded or designed backpack as a soldier: Soldiers are not permitted to carry a branded or designed backpack while wearing the army uniform, however they are permitted to carry an all-black rucksack or an army backpack that matches their uniform.
This restriction, however, is not strictly enforced, which is why we frequently encounter soldiers in public locations who are not on duty but are dressed in army uniform.
5.) Do not protest in military uniform: Soldiers are constitutionally permitted to demonstrate, but protesting in military uniform is strictly illegal.
6.) Public displays of affection: If you have a wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, or lover in the army, this rule applies to you.Because public displays of affection are strictly outlawed in the army, the two of you are unable to do so.
