MAN WHO NAMED DOG ‘BUHARI’| AIG Calls for Case File as Joe Chinakwe Rearrested

MAN WHO NAMED DOG ‘BUHARI’| AIG Calls for Case File as Joe Chinakwe Rearrested

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police for the Zone II Command Headquarters in Lagos, Abdulmajid Ali, has ordered that the case files of the man who allegedly named his dog ‘Buhari’,  be transferred to his desk without delay.
Joe Chinakwe, 30, was arrested and confined to a police cell in Sango Otta, Ogun State, for three days last week after a neighbour complained that he named his dog ‘‘Buhari”.
The neighbour, who police identified as Halilu Umar from Sokoto State, reportedly told the police that Mr. Chinakwe’s decision was aimed at spiting and ridiculing his father who also happened to be named ‘Alhaji Buhari.’
Police sources were quoted as saying that Mr. Chinakwe’s action was “very provocative” and capable of stocking ethno-religious tensions in the country, allegations Mr. Chinakwe reportedly denied.
Mr. Chinakwe said he named his dog ‘Buhari’ out of personal affection he had for President Muhammadu Buhari. He was granted bail by the police,but in a bizarre twist, Mr. Chinakwe was again rearrested on Friday.
Police said they rearrested Mr. Chinakwe ahead of his arraignment before a Magistrate’s Court on Monday as well as to guarantee his safety, having been allegedly threatened by neighbours.
Mr. Oyeyemi said since Mr. Ali had expressed his interest in the case and wanted to broker a peace amongst the parties involved, Mr. Chinakwe might not be charged to court again on Monday.
“The matter may likely not go to court again on Monday,” Mr. Oyeyemi said.
The Zone II Command covered Lagos and Ogun States
