The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) have warned the public against the unlawful sale and use of military-pattern uniforms.
In a press release by GAF, it says it is embarking on series of exercises to curb the unlawful sale and use of military-pattern uniforms and accoutrements.
The exercise will reinforce the existing methods following the continuous use of the uniforms and accoutrements by persons and institutions, who have not been permitted to do use.
Despite the continuous public education and warnings issued to the general public to desist from the unauthorised use of military uniforms, Ghana Armed Forces says the trend rather appears to be on the increase.
"No person shall wear or use any military uniforms, equipment, or accoutrements or other material unless he or she is a member of the Armed Forces of Ghana," GAF quoted National Liberation Council Decree (NLCD)177 of 1967.
The release also states, "the Ghana Armed Forces therefore seeks the cooperation of the general public to curb the use of military uniforms and accoutrements especially by criminally-minded persons."
It advised that unauthorised persons including celebrities are to desist from wearing military uniforms as it is prohibited under NLCD 177.
The Ghana Armed Forces have cautioned that people who continue to violate the law would be arrested and taken through the due process of law.
