Chinakwe(pictured) was released on Wednesday after the police authorities frowned at his arrest by the Sango Police division, and ordered his release.

Recounting his ordeal in the police cell, “I was intimidated and thrown inside the cell with hardened criminals for about three days. While I was there, the complainant from Niger Republic and Sergeant Musa from the North kept on taunting me saying people from my part of the country are trouble makers and that after detaining me, they will throw me into prison where I will die unsung,” Chinakwe told Vanguard.

Chinakwe who sells Okrika at the Sango market told the paper why he christened his dog ‘Buhari’.

He said, “I did not commit any offence. I named my beloved pet dog Buhari, who is my hero. My admiration for Buhari started far back when he was a military Head of State. It continued till date that he is a civilian President. After reading his dogged fight against corruption, which is like a canker worm eating into the very existence of this country, I solely decided to rename my beloved dog which I called Buhari, after him. I did not know that I was committing an offence for admiring Buhari.”
