The Nigeria Police Force has ordered the arrest of any member of the public caught wearing its uniform and kits.

The Police Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu warned in statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja that the Police High Command has directed Zonal AIGs and Command Commissioners of Police to arrest anyone who choses to break the law by wearing police uniform and kits.

This is coming after some people, thought to have been youth vanguards were caught kitted in outfits similar to police uniform.

“This action is illegal as it is clearly stated in section 214, sub section 1 of the constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria stating that “there shall be a Police Force for Nigeria which shall be known as Nigeria Police Force, and subject to the provision of this section no other Police Force shall be established for the Federation or any part thereof,”” the statement said.

“Attention is also drawn to section 42 of Police Act cap 19 LFN 2014 which stated inter alia that “every person not being a Police officer who puts on or assumes either in whole or in part, the dress, name, designation, or description of any Police officer or any dress, name or designation, resembling and intended to resemble the dress, name or designation of any Police officer, or in any way pretends to be a Police officer for the purposes of obtaining admission into any house or other place, or of doing any act which such person would not by law entitled to do his own authority, shall be guilty of offence…”” it added.

According to the statement, the warning was necessary with the approach of the 2015 general elections.

The Police further warned that government or private security outfit or youth vanguards should use uniforms or accoutrements that are not similar to that of the Nigeria Police, adding that private security outfits would absolutely not be allowed near a polling booth or polling station on election days.
