dog buhari owner released bail

August 26, 2016 – Picture: Dog Buhari Owner Released On Bail, Offers No Apology For Action

Joachim Iroko, a 40-year-old man standing trial for allegedly naming his dog ‘Buhari, said yesterday that he had no regret for what he did. Iroko, who regained freedom from prison four days after he was granted bail by an Ota Magistrates’ Court 2 in Ogun State, said he gave the dog the name because Buhari was his role model.

The father of two, who said that his wife was currently pregnant, maintained that some people misconstrued his action.

His words:

“I have no regret for my action. It only happened that some people misconstrued my action. I am so happy for having splendid life again. It is joy to me.”

“I have three dogs – one bears Obama, one bears Joe, my full name and the third is Buhari.

“I named these dogs after my role models and the late dog I had bore Nelson Mandela. I don’t just give any name to my dog. I give reputable names to my dogs. It is the love I have for Buhari, who is my role model.”

  1. You will not have no regret for your action because the incident happened in Sango Ota, Ogun state. While not try your stupid and dumb behavior or action in Kano or Zamfara states? Naming dogs of all animals Buhari will get you and your entire family killed in any northern states. Please next time, name or inscribed popular Igbo names like Nnamdi Azikwe, Opara, Nzeribe, Chekuemeka, Ojukwu, and your father’s name on your dog. Dumb troublemaker trying to stir up another tribal or religious conflicts in a peaceful region of the nation. No more bloodbath in our society.

    • Abeg……buhari get dog brain ,i see nothing wrong in namin a dog Buhari….He cn prove Nigerian wrong by changin d state of d ECONOMY

  2. @Omokehinde,honestly, i can’t stop laughing over your comment….soooooooooo funny and it shows you never believe this guy at all.

    Thank you for helping me get some relief in this harsh situation.

  3. @Omokehinde do you really understand the meaning of ‘pet animals’? Mind you some people love their pets more than their relations or friends and do not see anything wrong with it.Comedian Ali Baba had tried to explain this but some of you with ********* are bent at insinuating evil intention on the young man. Had this man been from other another tribe outside Igbo you omokehinde would have viewed it differently. Please enough of these ********.

    • Trust me Joe if he had tried that stunt in the north we will probably be typing rip to him and his family so in essence don’t parade meaty bones in the presence of a dog because such person may not live to tell the story so lets be cautious of our actions in regards to tension in the country.

  4. God bless you @Oke Joe. Omokehinde is just a ********s what is going on in the world beyond. Even Obama will never ask anyone to arrest an American citizen for naming his/her pet Obama. *********.

  5. @ Oke joe….. do u knw that mumu guy named his late dog after u?…. i case u dnt dnt knw, u re informed nw

  6. One would expect that this man will apply wisdom and maintain decorum to allow his case die.His statements would make the police get infuriated again. The last time he was let go, rather than him to go and face his family and his “okirika” clothing business, he waa busy jumping from one newspaper/television house to another singing praises of the top police officer in Eleweran that helped him out. He quoted the top police officer as saying that “the case was a small case and should be treated with levity, and that the DPO of Sango police ought not to have taken the case that far”. Few days after he made those statements, he was re-arrested.So he thinks that the top police officer that made those statements and helped him out the first time would allow this moron destroy his name, position and career?i guess its the wrath of the same top police officer he is seing now.

  7. @Omokehinde, I shrug at your ignorance & tribal sentiments over this particular incidence & I seriously know its because of this man’s tribe as all your comments portray such.
    Hopefully, you experience same and come back with your tribal centered comments.
    I’m yet to see this man’s offence in naming his pet dog Buhari which is not a trademark. I’m also disappointed at the way this issue was handled though that’s normal with NPF with their corrupt judgement.
    Ibos are not known for violence in any way and so this man couldn’t have done this to stir up such.
    Such dictatorship as democracy!
    We all are watching.

  8. Oke Joe, Omokehinde’s simple message was “A stitch in time saves nine” so preach that sermon to yourself.

  9. The is free to give his dog whatever name he wishes, maybe his dog looks or behaves like Buhari, thank God anyone didn’t try arresting me for giving my dog tinubu, then i’d have shown the person how I became a SAN. ****************

  10. @omokehinde you’ve already caused a tribal misunderstanding here already… i can read your mind @omokehinde having read most of your article on this forum i(we) know you are an APC member and a buhari fan. i can tell you, you are only angry because he named his dog after a supposed oga of yours.

  11. Why this noise over pet animals? I bought a white Alsatian dog May 2015 and i named it Muhammed Buhari, just for memorial of his assumption to power. Whats all thses noise?

  12. NOW I AM sure this guy is very innocent. Please we should leave him alone. He even had one of his dogs names after himself; or isn’t Joe short for Joachim? Abeg sheathe your swords everybody!

  13. Hello guys, there is no element of hatred or sentiment in me for any tribe in Nigeria. Infact, I love the Igbo people because many wonderful Igbos still remain my good friends to date. I have lived peacefuly with many friends from all Nigerian tribe from my primary, secondary, and up to my university education in Lagos, Nigeria. However, I will always tell the truth regardless of the individual’s religion belief, culture, language, and tribe. In a country like Nigeria, we must learn to be sensitive, reasonable, and try to live in peace with all men. The initial report states that Mr. Joachim-an Igbo trader in a predominantly Hausa community inscribed Buhari on his dog, to me, that is pure provocation which could have led to lost of lives if those Hausa didn’t channel their anger the right way by reporting the situation to police. We must be reasonable and know that Joachim did this dumb thing not because he loves Mohammed Buhari more than his own father. That is nothing but pure lie. Dog and Pig are the two forbidden animals to all practicing Muslims worldwide. I will always say or comment based on facts and never on tribalism or hatred of any group of people that are wonderfully created by God Almighty. Nigeria is not Europe, America or Canada.

    • story for the ****…”Nigeria is not europe America or canada” are people from this continent two headed..mtscheew

  14. @omoken your are a wonderful man I don’t keep friends but I want us to be am an automobile importer from edo state

  15. @OMOKEHINDE, THE ONLY REASON I WON’T SAY YOU ARE totally right is that this same guy had named his other dogs according to notable names. Did you read that his late dog was Nelson Mandela? Presently, he has three dogs, Obama, Buhari and Joe. And Joe is even his own name. Since he could give his dog his own name, I have changed my mind concerning how I once looked at the case. Where I blame the guy is having to write the name, Buhari on the dog. That was taking provocation a notch further.

  16. u people are making alot of noise here o,but una noise wont stop me from going to market now to buy two dogs male and female,and i will name them after my role model couple buhari and aisha,and if dogs born pikin, i will name he after my best commentor in buhari’s matter omokehinde.this is freedom of giving names.

  17. Omokehinde i’m with you on that one, the man’s action is totally childish and insensitive, as an afterthought he claims Buhari is his role model,and he also supposedly had a ‘late’ dog that he named ‘Mandela’,(pure lies) we are Nigerians and understand the mindset of the avverage Nigerian as regards the hardship we are generally facing, also the general inclination that Buhari is the cause,but even @ that,its insolent to say the least, let’s even forget the religious implication, it’s not right,i’m not a Buhari fan, but we should do the right thing, the man should have a dog, goat or any other animal named after him by someone who looks up to him as a ‘role model’ let’s see if he’ll be so pleased.I believe he didn’t forsee the sh*t he was putting himself in when he did what he did. A fool @. 40 is indeed the idea fool.God bless Nigeria

  18. This guy is a liar, sayg he named 3 dogs after other people, why didn’t he say that in his initial story. Instead he asked that d dog be killed so as to conceal evidence.
    Omokehinde I understand u perfectly and I agree with u, why are people on dis platform been sentimental.
    No one is sayg he should not name his dogs with whatever name he so desires, but not at causing unnecessary troubles. People should just be careful what they do.
