Man Arrested And Denied Bail For Naming Pet Dog ‘Buhari’ In Ogun State

jail man

A 30-year-old trader has been arrested by the police in Ogun state for naming his pet dog ‘Buhari.’

The trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, of No 10, Omikunle Street, Sango-Ota, Ogun State, was reportedly arrested last weekend, after one of his neighbours of Northern extraction complained bitterly that he named his dog after his father, Alhaji Buhari.

Vanguard learned that the complainant reported the case at Sango Police Station, last Saturday, after which the trader was arrested and detained.

However, it was gathered that efforts by the police to recover the dog, which they intended using as evidence failed following a clever move by the suspect.

The trader, said to be trading in female wears at a popular market in Sango, allegedly directed his friends secretly to kill the dog and possibly eat the meat in order to avoid being implicated. It was gathered that consistent appeals by his friends and relations for the police to grant him bail failed as the complainant and his kinsmen reportedly threatened to kill the trader if he was released on bail.

The case, however, took a different dimension two days later when Chinakwe’s relatives went to Sango police station to further plead for his bail only to be informed that the case file and the suspect have been transferred to Ogun State Police Command headquarters at Eleweran.

A relation to the suspect, who simply identified himself as Chiedozie, told Vanguard that his brother was being persecuted for no just cause and expressed fears that he may either be poisoned inside police cell or thrown into jail.

Chiedozie said: “Chinakwe is a lover of dogs and he names them after things that tickle him. He bought this dog a year ago and named it Buhari. Unfortunately, some Northerners, who dominate the vicinity where he resides misconstrued his intention and connived to take him up. The complainant then claimed it was derogatory because his father answers Buhari.”

Police sources, however, told Vanguard that the actions of the suspect “were very provocative.”

The source said: “he not only named the dog Buhari but boldly wrote it on the body of both sides of the dog and was seen parading the neighbourhood dominated by Northerners with it”

When contacted around 8pm yesterday, the acting Police spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, ASP, said he was still trying to get the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of Sango for details.

  27. Mogbolahan Awesu

    What dose tribe has to do with the issue on ground..foolish man…afterall the man they arrested for naming his dog buari is a Igbo man like u and the man they re protecting his name is a Hausa man..so what is Yoruba matter in this now?? Ewu!

  28. This man a fool. Did he forget there no freedom of speech in Nigeria. Did his dog told on him or what?

  29. Wat do u mean.. By.. Buhari!???

  30. Because the dog is a bad dog

  31. But wat am seeing is a tiger but not a dog

  32. infact rats goats n many mor were named after d previous president in d north but no body sed anytin

  33. So, instead of given my lovely pet dog strong names like Gadaffi, Rollings, Putin, Osama even Mugabe it now be a weak name like Buhari that my dog should bear as name, tufiakwa. Pet simply mean a domestic animal you really love. I can’t name my pet dog Buhari because I don’t even love the name.

  34. That dog never keeps his promises to the owner that is why he named it buhari

  35. Chant Blanq N Lakpofyon

  39. Ugboguru Obiora Chijioke

    He has been released on the order of the police commissioner. In his defence,he claimed naming his dog after Buhari was borne out of his love and enthusiasm for Buhari’s charisma. But I say,what a twisted and intelligent idea?

  40. Uwalaka Jaymz Kaycee

    Where in the constitution was is stated that if a citizen choose to name his pet after a human name, he or she should be arrested,.. Why is this country so funny like this,.. The man chose to name his dog buhari how has that become a crime,..I’ve seen a dog named Goodluck before,..so what’s the big deal,..I can even decide to name my cat buhari or babangida, I don’t c that as a crime it’s a choice,..your president buhari is not the only one in the whole world who bears that name, he’s not God

  41. Nigeria have bigger problems as this, this man loves his dog and now he arrested, Mr.Buhari should spent some money on to feed the children and send them to school and others as this nonsense!

  42. that is becos illiteracy is in its highest order.

  43. Shut up ur mouth,wat do u no abt respect…aboki like u

  44. Dem b cows

  45. As leader, he should be ready for insults. Goodluck Jonathan was the most insulted president. Any leader who cannot take insults is not fit.

  46. D guy in question does not no his right that is y these is fallin upon him…

  47. Nigeria police are full of illiterates na

  48. Onya Igbo don’t have respect to their elders

  53. Shereephdeen Alabeeade Oyeleke II

    Its my own discretion it’s not a crime to give a dog a name but I think writing the name boldly on the dog may somehow seems provocative, derogatory & absurd. Don’t get me wrong, naming a dog is not a crime but naming it with an intention of sarcasm is, and if that’s the case, I think the man has transgressed beyond his bounds.

  54. @ Sugar Ken why cant you name your dog after your father or your mother you fool. We Muslim s dont chose our. names carelessly
