Ogun state trader arrested for naming pet dog ‘Buhari’

A 30-year-old trader named Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, has been arrested by the Ogun state police command for naming his pet dog ‘Buhari'. This was after after one of his neighbours, a man from Northern Nigeria, filed a complaint that Joe named his dog after his father, Alhaji Buhari. According to Vanguard, after the complaint was made at Sango Police Station, the trader was arrested, detained and would reportedly be arraigned in court today.


Efforts by the police to recover the dog, which they intended using as evidence failed. The trader, allegedly instructed his friends to secretly to kill the dog. Now, 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.

A relation to the suspect expressed fears that he may either be poisoned inside a police cell or thrown into jail. According to the person, “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.”

The acting Police spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, ASP, stated that indeed Joe bought a dog, but he inscribed Buhari on both sides of the dog's body and paraded the dog around the area.

"One Mallam lodged a complaint and when our men got there, we found out that it was true. You know such thing can cause serious breach of the peace and ethnic or religious unrest. We are charging him to court for conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.”

    5. I blame the stupid and shameless police that arrested him. Those so-called police should be fired for stirring people's anger. As for the aboki, I believe the dog was disrespected for being called such a degrading name.

    6. These Northerners are so uncivilised and stupid. I know a dog called Ngozi. It could be that the man was happy that Buhari won elections that's why he names his pet dog after Mr President. Those abokis are not even afraid oh. They are claiming right in another man's land. Do they think they are in the North? They must be very stupid

    7. See the way people are looking down on the dog just because he is an animal. They have no respect for the dog. Make una go try this nonsense for oyinbo land if them no go jail all the abokis for that area for looking down on a pet dog.

    5. I beg to disagree with you opposing Bonario. We must not necessarily follow the so called freedom of speech or expression. Even the freedom of information bill has its limitations. Let's adopt the life strike that will make us live harmoniously. I wonder if Onitsha people Will allow an Hausa man to name his cow Chinedu in their well dominated area. There is something hidden in the guy naming his dog Buhari. We all know that. Asked the guy he knows it deep inside him. God is the ultimate judge.

    8. @ Anon 9:23AM, you wrote
      "I wonder if Onitsha people Will allow an Hausa man to name his cow Chinedu in their well dominated area."
      If a Hausa man names his cow Odumegwu Ojukwu, a reverred Igbo man, we will just laugh at his stupid sense of humor. We won't attempt or threaten to kill him.
      You make the mistake of assuming that we reason like you do.
      You fight & kill for your god, we let our God fight for us and defend us.
      You have no respect for the sanctity of human life, we do.
      We're simply not the same/similar.

      As for Bonario who has been licking ass since 1800, I'm sure calling a dog Buhari (his god) is sacrilegious. Continue...
      We're watching you.

    9. @Bonario...As a Northerner I find your statement abhorant and inciting, thats if you are educated enough to know what those two words mean. Respect yourself. I can name my dog Buhari or Ojukwuand no one can arrest or say anything because we live a democracy. The Best name would have been IBB like the dog he is. This story is very stupid and shows how small minded Nigerians can be. Grow up!

      Your freedom of movement for example does not mean you are free to just walk into my room. I also have right to my privacy.
      Actions that are likely to breach law and order is prosecutionable. Instead of the guy to concentrate on his hustle that brought him to Lagos....

  23. you all got it wrong....in law it becomes a public order offence if engaging in a conduct like giving a dog a name to intentionally cause harassment..alarm or distress to another or to provoke immediate use of violence by that other...that explain why the police has to arrest the offender

    1. How do you know his 'intent' since you say intentionally. What if he meant no harm?

    2. That is totally wrong.freedom of expression together with freedom to acquire property, movable or immovable is still his fundamental human right. And if his intentions were not to harass or cause any disorder..he's still expressing his God given rights.

    1. It is you that is stupid. Any human that wants to kill another because of naming a dog is retarded. Not to talk of fighting because it. So many Nigerians love America but many of us can't live there. In America, there is freedom limited only by laws. If you don't like the name, ask him to change it quietly or leave the neighborhood. Whites in the US move each time they ain't comfortable with blacks around.

And a Nigerian court will sit discussing a dog name, what's more ridiculing than that. Shouldn't Buhari be happy that someone even find his name fancy enough for a dog, because to me that name is what I don't want to see around me . Shame on Ogun state police, they should go and catch criminals not dog owners.......gosh

  62. I don't consider what he did patriotic. But I don't think it is unconstitutional too or should make him go to jail. We should find out if he named the dog ''Muhammadu Buhari ( the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria)''. Now after Jesus Christ lived on earth, we still hear about people named Jesus but not Jesus Christ. I just think we are being petty by arresting him

  64. In Igbo language,"buhari" means to change the position of something.So it is possible that the trader gave an Igbo name to his dog.I hope he can defend his action because the word "buhari" Is not registered exclusively by any tribe or religion.

    The police did not deploy policemen to protect lives and property when Fulanis were killing people in Kaduna because according to them 'they don't want to take sides in the matter by providing security for the villagers' who were being massacred in their homes but have enough men to arrest someone for a name given a dog.

  69. A dog a valuable security pet that prevents criminals from entering your premises or tampering with your property. This is what Buhari is doing. It could be a pride for the boy to name his dog Buhari. Please get it into your head, the boy will give his dog your name because you are inconsequential.

  71. Highly disappointed with certain people in Nigeria. So we can't name our dog Buhari I'll name my dog when I have one Buhari. What stupidity. My friends dog called Lucky which is my other name other name so I should arrest him? I realise we can't say nothing to Buhari. He's like a dictator. The way things are going anyone can't stand to correct Bhatia. See the way Nigerians disrespected Goodluck Jonathan let those ones try Buharo and see.
