Man who named dog ‘Buhari’ rearrested

20 August 2016, 08:18

Abeokuta - There appears to be more troubles for Joe Chinakwe, a trader in Sango area of Ogun State, who named his pet dog ‘Buhari’, reports Vanguard

He‎ has been rearrested by police and now under detention at the state police headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta.

He would be charged to court for conduct likely to cause breach of peace

The state acting Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, ‎described Chinakwe’s action as capable of fuelling ethnic crisis if not well managed.

It would be recalled that Chinakwe was arrested last Saturday after his neighbour of Northern extraction complained that he named the dog after his father, Alhaji Buhari and later reported the case at Sango Police Station.

He was later released after spending three days in police custody at Sango-Ota.
