The man who was arrested for naming his dog Buhari, Mr Joachim Iroko Chinakwe has now named his daughter Aisha presumably after the president’s wife.
Mr Chinakwe was arrested last month by the police after being reported by his Northern neighbor. His neighbor was offended by the name given to his dog but was eventually released on bail.
Owner of ‘Buhari’ dog names daughter Aisha
The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone II, Abdulmajid Ali had in a statement said the arrest was done to prevent a likely breach of public peace. Mr Chinakwe did reveal that he had two other dogs named Obama and Joe. He also revealed that President Buhari was his role model.
This particular name however should be viewed as less offensive. This is because it is given to a human and not an animal. The name was reported by human rights activist and lawyer, Mr Inibehe Effiong via twitter.
