Man arrested for naming dog after Buhari

A man, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, has been arrested in Ogun State for naming his dog after President Muhammadu Buhari.

Chinakwe, a trader, who lives at No 10, Omikunle Street, Sango-Ota, Ogun State, was arrested last weekend after one of his neighbours, a northerner, reported him to the police at Sango Police Station, accusing him of naming his dog(file image) after his father, Alhaji Buhari, Vanguard reported.

The report said the 30-year-old suspect wrote ‘Buhari’ on both sides of the dog body, an act that was perceived by people of northern extraction in the neighbourhood where Chinakwe lives as an attempt to derogate President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The man bought a dog and inscribed Buhari on both sides of its body. One Mallam lodged a complaint and when our men got there, we found out that it was true. You know such thing can cause serious breach of the peace and ethnic or religious unrest. We are charging him to court for conduct likely to cause a breach of peace,” the acting Police spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, ASP, told the paper.
