Flying drones in NigeriaLearn in this article what rules apply to drones in Nigeria.

In Nigeria, all drones weighing between 250 grams and 25 kilograms must be registered. The drone registration can be done here by hobby pilots online. If you do not register, you risk a fine or imprisonment of up to three years.

Commercial pilots must obtain a permit directly from the Nigerian Aviation Authority. In the application, I would submit my German drone license.
