Trader Explains Why He Named His Dog 'Buhari'

The Police in Ogun State, yesterday, released unconditionally, the 30-year-old trader, Joe Fortemose  Chinakwe, who was arrested last Saturday for naming his pet dog ‘Buhari’. 




The embattled trader, who was visibly angry after his three-day incarceration in police cell, was let off the hook around 5pm on Tuesday after the intervention of both the Serkin Hausa and President-General of non-indigenes in the state. 


It was learned that the prompt intervention of the elders made the complainant to withdraw the case he reported against the trader at Sango-Ota division which was later transferred to Police headquarters at Eleweran. However, police sources said both the complainant and suspect were made to sign an undertaking not to cause any breach of peace again. 

Speaking to Vanguard after this release, the trader, a father of two from the Niger Delta, who trades on second hand clothing lamented that he was made to suffer for no just cause. Complainant from Niger Republic Narrating his ordeal, Chinakwe said “It is annoying because the complainant is from Niger Republic and I am sure he is one of those illegal aliens in this country.  

He connived with one Police Sergeant from the Northern part of Nigeria called Musa, who works at Sango Police division to humiliate me.  Worse still, the Divisional Police Officer there, did not help matters as he refused to entertain any plea from me after I was arrested that Saturday night. He simply ordered his men to throw me into the cell.” 

Why dog was named Buhari 

Continuing, 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. 


Ordeal with Police

“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. ”Even when my wife came with our baby on her back, they stopped her from giving me food.  One of my friends that came to see me was also maltreated. “While taking me to Eleweran the next day, they handcuffed and chained me together with that my friend. Fortunately, when we got to police headquarters, both the Commissioner of Police and other officers were angry with their colleagues at Sango-Ota. ”They were wondering loudly why I was brought to the headquarters over such a minor case. It’s very unfortunate that I have to be so humiliated in my own country because of the antics of a foreigner in connivance with my brother from the North.”
  


*Thank God you are safe and fine,Buhari will be glad to see you back i am sure.

Why do you always cuss people who share nonconcordant opinion with u on here? U always do this sounding like u are all-knowing and it's annoying. Funny enough, you'd be the one with little knowledge of the subject at hand but you'd still be cussing those u are suppose to learn from and you'd be feeling like you's the shii. Can't u just swallow your insignificant pride and learn from pple who are obviously well travelled and more knowledgeable than u do here? Na wah! I never see !

Hahahahaha! His reason is just so funny but might be true

I am not a Buhari apologist.
While i know it is not a punishable offence to give an animal a human name,I think naming a dog, an animal which most Nigerians see as disgusting after a president who is worshipped blindly by his admirers in an area dominated by people of northern extraction is foolish. If it were in the north, say in Kano state, he would have been dead by now.
Certainly not an offense under the law but still socially unacceptable.
And no he didn't name his dog after Buhari because he admired him. He did it for derogatory reasons. Buhari is no more than an animal to him, a dog. And I can i Aline him calling after his dog 'Buhari! Buhari! Just to spite the people he aimed to offend.
If someone named an animal after someone I loved, no matter the intentions, I too would be offended.
As Eka Malice wrote he should have given the name to a goat. I'm sure she would be glad if someone named a pig after her father.

Be careful, you are in the midst of people who can kill for flimsy reasons so stop looking for trouble.

I don't believe this man. If he truly love Buhari as he said. He should name his child Buhari and not his dog.
Or he can smuggle Buhari as his middle name. He is just a trouble maker

BonaParte NN said...

Who says all easterners hate Buhari, to start with?

His incarceration is wrong on all levels and what I read here by even so called lawyers shocked me.

A country of sectionalism and inequality cannot stand.

1) It is not a crime to name your dog anything or even paint the name front and back! It can never be a CRIME!

2) those saying his action is likely to cause breach of peace are pissing me off. Anything is likely to cause breach of peace, a tatooed girl wearing a mini skirt in front of muslims, a christian carrying a Quran without performing ablution, a man rearing pigs in the neighbourhood, a set of suspected gay couple...JUST ABOUT ANYTHING can tick off a radical muslim!! What happened to tolerance?

It riles me that instead of condemning the intolerant party and his family member who threatened death on another person, people were here lauding him, saying the guy erred. it is alarming that in a country with so proclaimed independence and freedom for all, a simple act like this will be construed to be likely to cause breach of peace. If we allow this, then we can as well allow police victimisation and torture. To me, this was a case of FALSE IMPRISONMENT.

From the 'lil' I know about law.
-Breach of peace must be a severe conduct: conduct severe enough to cause alarm to ordinary people and threaten serious disturbance to the community.

-the police must not just simply believe that there is likelihood for a breach of peace BUT That breach of Peace must be so imminent, so certain, so about to happen that everyone can see.

-The person must not be kept for long and CAN NEVER be convicted! He will only be warned when the fire is down and let loose.


If this man's conduct in anyway is seen to be any of the above, then SERIOUSLY we need to begin to consider the possibility of breaking up the country because the union cannot work this way.(i'm even deciding to skip the rubbish the police constable said about his tribe)

As a crime- no.
As a tort- NAY. He has no locus standi to even sue him nor can he be heard by any court in the world.

So, what were you guys going on about?

I warn again, we are allowing impunity that will later bite us in the ass; people's freedom are being eroded and some people are supporting it:
Yesterday, it was a woman who didnt allow people perform ablution in front of her shop (some said she knew where she was, why did she not just let them) a woman who preached on the road(some people still said she was inciting violence), a man who was eating when some others were fasting(they said he was provocative), the other day, a church operating when Jumat was going on(they said why were they making noise with loud instruments), today a man named his dog and painted his dog or whatever! For how long do you keep justifying it?

I dont see this in the UK or US or Canada and yes, they are union countries like us.

So, a section of the country should be treated as eggs? Then why are you even together? Before, it was their land, now its coming down south.

Instead of this 'carefulness', why not divide so no one can get offended about stuff like this?

Darismativ said...

My own is not what was named what but how this "young man" of 30 will say his admiration for Buhari started back when he was military head of state. My brother, 30 years ago, IBB was HOS so you weren't even born talk more of admiring then. Abi na as spermatozoa you take do the admiration? Or is it that you read history books and admired the Buhari you read about? Biko, tell us your real age and leave football age

Eesah, Eka is a lost case and a lost soul. Nobody knows it all and being educated should rub off on one in a positive way...


There should be a huge difference in the way an educated person and an illiterate argues...isn't that why we were to school? To do things differently, to be civil, to be refined etc.


The likes of sisi eko, Iphie, Ronalda, bonarparte will never insult people when making their submission or just because they disagree with others yet they drive home their points...


But this one who is a nobody and lacks home training will come here and be insulting her elders, calling people fools, idiots.
If we abuse her parents now it will be like one is going too far but don't forget that you are insulting other people's parents.


It is a blog but don't say you were not cautioned.

Name which goat Buhari? Eka Joy you are not Igbo if not you will know the 2 days riot this type of issue caused in Anambra State some years back.



What happened? The indigenes were not happy with the governance of ex- Gov Emeka Ezeife, the Gov with pure white long beards, his nickname was OKWADIKE, he passed some new laws sealing off some parts of the place where goats were sold, then the Hausa goat sellers at the Onitsha Niger Bridge Head got angry, held a demonstration and started naming their bearded goats Okwadike, wrote the name on goats with black and white paints.



Some Okada riders tied bandanas on their side mirrors with funny cloths drawn with white bearded he goats and were calling themselves Okwadike riders. The Gov made a live TV broadcast to state that anyone caught will be dealt with. 3 Hausa men paid for it because they refused to clean off the names on the goats.



This man should go and thank his stars, he is still alive, what manner of mumuism is this?

Bonaparte, sorry I beg to differ. You don't jump in front of a moving train to prove a point. your submission is very correct but can only apply if we lived in saner climes.

The entire armed forces is saturated with the fulanis and hausas. They are at the helm of affairs. So who do you run to? God help you if you're igbo, not even a Yoruba man will be willing to help. That's the unfortunate reality in this country.

We are plagued with tribalism and religious sentiments. Until the day God decides it's time for Nigeria to divide, this and much more will keep happening. Best thing is to stay out of harm's way.

This guy is very lucky. I think social media helped his case a great deal. Many people have been silenced in the most brutal way for even lesser 'offences'.

Kindly get on with your day's job. Assuming you have one. Thanks for the attention, troll.Lmao.

How about the period when everyone was naming all living things goodluck? Stupid goats. Even if he named the dog out of hatred for buhari, is that a crime? The Niger guy should be dealt with seriously. This is how they start tribal wahala. We are yet to recover from one and the goat wants to start another.

PL: I agree with you that people should guide themselves with the reality on ground. E.g Even in America, black communities are presently angry and they're attitudes a white man will go and exhibit there, even if he is within his rights can get him lynched. I understand you very much. I'm only sad that these things happen. And I only wish we could condemn it more often. You need to see all I read on Vanguard site yesterday. Just cos you hate a tribe, you cant even condemn what is wrong. People gloating and all forgetting what goes around has a way of coming back.

@Serenity, Dietitian, Adadiora: its sad people cannot express themselves on the internet without rancour. Dissing is ok and funny but outright abuse is just bad. We all have our opinion. Its stuff like this that led to the man's imprisonment in the 1st place.

@Miss Truth: my dear, tomorrow now it may happen in higher magnitude. Remember how the Godfather (Mario puzo) spoke about taking little disrespect and how it later turns to another thing.

@Triumphant: i'm beginning to see the point of those who ask for separation or restructuring. Sadly.

Nigeria police and its legendary overzealous attitude!Harasslng citizens daily over nothing.By the way,it is important to note that what is legally right may be socially and morally insensitive. Why not name the dog after your parents? It is expected that you love them too, perhaps, even more than you love buhari. Nonsense!

What did that innocent preacher woman do in abuja before being murdered? Nothing. Yet she was murdered. Exercise you civil rights with sense in this country because you have to be careful not to offend sensibities in a volatile country such as ours.
