Insecurity: How Do Criminals Easily Acquire the Nigerian Military Regalia?

In a heartwarming report, the suspected masterminds of the abduction of students of Bethel Baptist Church High School in Kaduna State have been captured by our gallant security operatives. The 3 suspects were identified as Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal and Muazu Abubakar, according to Sahara Reporters.

As we celebrate the significant arrest, there is a part of the whole capture and parade of the criminals that caught my attention and gave rise to several questions in my head.

In the video - just like other footages of arrested bandits and criminals - the arrested kidnappers were dressed in full military camouflage. It makes me wonder how do these criminals get the outfit which is meant to be specific to only registered security personnels.

What's all the questions all about? Some people might ask. Well, the camouflage uniform gives the criminals more leeway to deceive their victims, especially motorists. Commuters might stop on the road at the sight of the abductors, thinking they are soldiers. Hence, falling victim of abduction.

In some reports, bandits dressed in camouflage disguise as military personnels and gain access to villages, before razing down houses and rustling cattle.

The government need to treat this issue as a matter of urgency. Even if it means, banning the sales and purchase of camouflage clothing of any type and form.

Let us know your opinion: how can the Federal Government of Nigeria tackle this major obstacle in the fight against insecurity?
