August 20, 2016 – I Named My Dog After Buhari Because I Love Mr President – Sango Ota Trader Laments, Says Life Is In Danger

41-year-old Ota trader, Joachim Chinakwe, arrested and detained at the Sango Ota Police Station, Ogun State, on August 13, 2016, for naming his dog Buhari, has said his life is no longer safe.

Speaking with Saturday Punch yesterday minutes before he was again locked behind bars at the State Police Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, after initially being released last Tuesday, the father of one said he feared for his life because he does not know what could happen to him next.

He said

“I had to leave for Eleweran very early on Friday after receiving a letter on Thursday evening inviting me to the Command. I thought I was being called over for a peace talk, I never knew it was for the purpose of detaining me again.

“I am a law-abiding citizen of this country, I have never deliberately committed any offence before, I don’t know why I am being treated like this. I only called the dog that name for the love I have for President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria, I didn’t mean to taunt or hurt anybody with it. I don’t know what next could follow this, I am afraid for my life, I am in danger, please help me,” Chinakwe said before the telephone line went off.

  1. ISN’T IT getting funnier? I did say it that this man might have Aso Rock in mind at the naming ceremony of that dog. We can verify his claim to have named it after PMB if he we can establish that there is no history of quarrels between him and the late Alhaji Bujari’s family. After that, it is left to determine whether he had named the dog out of love or mockery of PMB. It is only the oyibos that wouldn’t mind to meet their dog namesakes. The oyibos might even hud and kiss the dig. But a Nigerian would instead kill the dog should he chance upon a meeting. And I am pretty certain that this Joachim would equally not find it funny to have another man naming his dog Joachim, even if it is out of reverent worship.

    BY AND large, the law has nothing against the Igboman. I would like to know how this case finally ends.

  2. This is bullying, how do you feel if i start calling my dog Joachim or Chinakwe it’s sound annoying and secondly that is bullying as well that is not love, if you love him change your own personal name to his name, so you need to apologise and therefore change that name as soon as possible.

  3. To be honest with you. If you truly love the President. President Muhammadu Buhari you will not name your pet dog after Buhari. why not to your son? you deserve what you are facing now but i pray that the Lord Almighty help u out in this case. God bless Nigeria

  4. AND WHAT IS WRONG NAMING YOUR GOAT, PIG OR DOG BUHARI? PLEASE WE SHOULD THINK ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND FORGET IRRELEVANT THINGS.

  5. You are sick, why didn’t you name the dog after your father? So you hate your father more than Mr President. Mumu man

  6. guy if i have a pig i will name he buhari too and name my rat Jonathan and chicken obasajo and my goat anenih Nigeria police fish because they dont have brain and more stupid government leave the innoncent guy alone

  7. I see no crime in that. Tokunbo for example is a cheap name. Cars, human beings, animal etc are call that. Si why the hullabaloo?

  8. I am sure you love yourself more than the President, you could have named the dog after yourself. Sorry o. I’d be mad too if anyone named a dog after me. Pray that you get out of this self-inflicted problem and then learn from this careless action. You had a bad motive otherwise naming your dog Buhari is not the problem because no one would know, however writing the name on the dog was a big time mistake on your part. Hope you get out of that place soon and give your dog your name.

  9. Nonsense talk from another troublemaker. I love my family so much but I will never degrade them by giving any of their names a dog or any animal. Why not name that dog your father, mother, wife, son or daughter’s name? Why can’t you name that dog Azikwe, Ojukwu, Opara, Nnamdi or other great Igbo names? Or are you claiming to love President Buhari more than anyone in your immediate family or than anyone in the entire Igbo tribe? Dumb and stupid hypocrate trying to stir up any religion and tribal conflicts in Ogun state. Say that to a kindergarten children. Naming your dog Buhari is not a crime by law, but in a nation like ours that can results to another tribal conflicts. Please let us be sensitive to other people’s feelings and stay away from troubles. No more bloodbath in our society.

  10. my own b say any name u like u give to ur dog,afterall what u caall ur dog is what he will answer.but oga joachim u made a mistake by naming only dat one buhari,without finding another female dog to name aisha,since u want to show d love u have for buhari’s family.rubbish.

  11. This Man is indeed a joker, many will argue that it’s his free will to name d Dog as he please,bt an igbo man naming his dog after a Fulani man in an ethnic society like Nigeria is difinately not a wise or logical thing to do.bcos actions like this can incite violence in a fragile country like Nigeria.I’m very certain dis Man would’ve been history if he resided in d North.People must learn to respect their Leaders,it’s a societal obligation to do so.He should have named d Dog after a family loved one,eyebrows wuld have been kept low.Lets becareful with our words n actions pls.

  12. Omokehinde God bless you for that wise comment. People should learn to embrace peace always and give honour to whom honour is due.

  13. Man, you should have chosen a better defence antic, this your kind of defence, naming a dog after the president and commander in chief will even helps to worsen your case. I may not know which lawyer give this kind of advise. BUT lest I forget, what about that policeman from that caricatured ex-president Jonathan commits suicide, what happens to him, is it because he is not an Igbo man?

  14. Foolish man, he knows why he named d dog Buhari, he is only tryg to get out of trouble by saying he loves PMB, it is a blatant lie. Hope u have learnt your lesson, trouble maker.
