A thirty-year-old trader has been arrested by the police in Ogun state for naming his pet dog ‘Buhari.’ Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, of Number ten, Omikunle Street, Sango-Ota, Ogun State, was reportedly arrested last weekend, after one of his neighbours of Northern extraction complained bitterly that he named his dog after his father, Alhaji Buharif N.
Report gathered that the complainant reported the case at Sango Police Station, last Saturday, after which the trader was arrested and detained. It was gathered that consistent 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 is released on bail.
