The commissioned officers are the ones that pass through the Nigerian Defence Academy NDA and were commissioned by the chief commander of the Armed Forces. You can read on how to join the Nigerian Defence Academy. Or those who joined the Nigerian Army as a graduate, which means that they have already finished from higher institutions before joining the Nigerian Army. We made an article on how to join the Nigerian Army as a graduate. Their salary is bigger than those who joined the Nigerian Army as a Non-Commisioned Officer.
