A few days ago, the Nigerian Army released a statement which was sent to all online publications, titled “AN OPEN LETTER TO NIGERIAN CELEBRITIES.” The letter called for Nigerian celebrities “to abstain from the use and abuse of the Nigerian Military camouflage”.
Jesse Jagz, who is known for his love for army fatigues, was put on blast in the statement for smoking marijuana while rocking military clothes. Other artistes that were named & shamed for wearing camouflage were Iyanya, Wizkid, Davido, Tekno Miles & even cute little Chidinma.
They have threatened that any celeb & civilian found guilty of rocking the camouflage “will be dealt with severely.” Read the entire letter (dated January 19, 2014) after the cut.
AN OPEN LETTER TO NIGERIAN CELEBRITIES
This is to inform the general public and most especially Nigerian celebrities to abstain from the use and abuse of the Nigerian Military camouflage.
Several investigations were carried out and we noticed the camouflage is mostly been used by Nigerian celebrities in music videos, photo-shoots and concerts.
In this same videos and photo sessions, Nigerian celebrities like “Jesse Jags” smoke marijuana while putting on the Nigerian Military camouflage. This is a shameful act and it will NOT be tolerated henceforth.
Other Celebrities have also been noticed putting on the camouflage at will. They include Iyanya, Wizkid, Davido, Tekno Miles, Chidinma etc.
The military camouflage is not meant for the entertainment industry, It is strictly meant for military personnel.
Henceforth, any civilian found GUILTY of putting on the camouflage irrespective of their social status will be dealt with severely.
OUR ACTIONS WILL NOT BE QUESTIONED.
