Police AIG, Ali Takes Over Case of Man Who Named Dog ‘Buhari’

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police for the Zone II Command Headquarters in Lagos, Abdulmajid Ali, yesterday asked the case files of a man alleged to have named his dog ‘Buhari’ should be transferred to his desk for further actions.

The Zone II Command covered Lagos and Ogun States.

It would be recalled that 30 years old Joe Chinakwe, was arrested and detained for three days in a police cell in Sango Otta, Ogun State, recently after a neighbour complained that he named his dog Buhari.
The neighbour, who police identified as Halilu Umar from Sokoto State, allegedly told the police that Chinakwe’s decision was aimed at spitting and ridiculing his father who also happened to be named Alhaji Buhari and Chinakwe was immediately arrested and detained for three days without bail.

Chinakwe had reportedly explained that he named his dog Buhari out of personal affection he had for President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was however, rearrested on Friday after a brief freedom he was granted by the police.
