Contrary to the media reports which claimed an Igbo trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe was sued for naming his pet dog 'Buhari', the President name, the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIGP, in charge of Zone 2 Command, Abdulmajid Ali, has explained why the man was actually arraigned.
The AIGP said Chinakwe’s arraignment had no connection with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The media had in recent time awash with the report that Chinakwe was been held and arraigned for naming his pet dog after the President's name.
Ali, in a statement on Monday said the man named his dog after his neighbour’s father and not the President.
“Chinakwe was not arraigned for naming the dog Buhari, but for inscribing the name on both sides of the dog and parading it around the Ketere area of Sango Ota, in the Ado Odo Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.
“His behaviour was capable of causing a breach of the peace.
The Zone 2 command spokesperson, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, in the statement also said the case was misconstrued as an attack on the President.
The statement reads in part, “It is fundamental to state that the man was not charged to court for christening his dog Buhari, but for the behaviour of the suspect and circumstances surrounding the matter when Mr. Joe (Chinakwe), who had been having conflicts with his neighbour,(complainant) named his dog Buhari, his neighbour’s father’s name, inscribed Buhari on both sides of the said dog, and started parading the dog with swagger among his neighbours and traders who are mostly northerners.nigeria police
“The case has nothing to do with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Mohammad Buhari, but with one Alhaji Buhari,the biological father of the complainant, Alhaji Halilu Umar,” the police reinstated.
Recall that the 30-year-old trader was charged to the Ota Magistrate Court 2, Ogun State by the police with conduct likely to cause breach of public peace, in a case with suit number MOT/617c/2016.
He has, however, been granted bail after he fulfilled his N50, 000 bail condition.
