The Ogun State Police Command on Friday said it had re-arrested the trader, Joe Chinakwe, who named his dog “Buhari”.

According to Vanguard, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police Public Relations Officer, said that the suspect would be arraigned in court on Monday.

Oyeyemi also stated that Chinakwe, who was earlier released a few days ago, was picked up again based on the Force’s belief that the suspect’s action was capable of provoking an ethno-religious crisis.

Oyeyemi said the rearrest was to prevent the state from being plunged into crisis, adding that the complainant and his sympathisers had threatened to kill the suspect.

“The man is here with us. He is at the Criminal Investigation Department. The charge will be prepared here and he will be arraigned at Sango Magistrate Court on Monday.

He is going to court on Monday because what he did was highly provocative. It can cause an ethnic and religious crisis. We have to be proactive, we cannot fold our arms and allow the state to be plunged into crisis.

In  fact,  the arrest was made to save the suspect’s life because the complainant and his group have threatened to kill him if he comes back and this may trigger violence,” Oyeyemi said.

Chinakwe, who hails from Okwuzu in Aniocha Local government Area of Delta State, had earlier told Vanguard that his dog had been killed by the “Northerners in his community”.

He said the complainant from Niger Republic had connived with a certain Sergeant Musa to humiliate him.

He also said he named his dog “Buhari” because President Buhari is his hero. Read it here. He added that his elder brother also had a dog named “Obama”.

    What??? Oh my God, this is so sad! And to think the dog has already been killed. Chai, the excesses of northerners in this country has to be checked. And to think this is happening in Ogun and not Zamfara???

      Aisha Buhari called a man, a human being, a sitting governor of a state a mad dog. She was not arrested.

      The former president Obasanjo just in May this same year, in full glare of invited media, donated a chimpanzee which he had named Patience (the name of the former First Lady, wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan) to a wildlife sanctuary. The police should ‘swing into action’ and go and arrest him also.

      We are not a muslim/islamist country. Despite all their laid plans and agendas to which they have been working and implementing from late Muritala (in fact even before) till date, they will ultimately fail and it will all blow up in their faces and they will find that they have more than shot themselves in their own foot.

      Buhari is not a god.

      And, Buhari is most certainly, not God.

      Buhari’s name can not be blasphemed. He simply doesn’t qualify. He simply can never, nor will ever be able to qualify.

      And, that he does not speak out against such travesties of justice, such colossal, bizarre and absurd waste of police resources and also to avert what could become or is becoming a tragedy, concerning that young man’s life, a complete robbery of his inalienable rights, and not least the depiction (as if any more were ever needed) of the Nigerian Police as a laughing-stock before the eyes of the world is, tragically, completely in character with the Buhari who never cared to speak, whilst the rest of (some parts of) the nation still reeled in shock at the breaking news of the unprecedented horror (a category already too sparsely-filled for one’s liking) in our nation of the ghastly slaughter and butchering, in cold blood, of the (initial) ten innocent Youth Corpers in Bauchi, by Buhari supporters, by mobs chanting pro-Buhari slogans, by mobs defacing and destroying anything that had the images of Jonathan and Sambo; and the killings, butcherings, machetings, hackings, rapes, lootings, burning, wholescale arson, wanton destruction and anarchy that ravaged relentlessly, it seemed just about almost all the northern states, for many bloody days, on a scale of brutality that inflicted fresh gaping wounds over the scars of the deadened and benumbed collective soul of the nation, most especially because of the unheard of slaughter of (more and more of) those innocents, whose only crime was to answer the call of non-partisan civic duty to their country.

      As mobs chanting his name, immediately after the results of the 2011 presidential elections trickled out enough to show he had lost, as mobs chanting Buhari’s name macheted, hacked, raped, killed, as practically just about every previous Head of State, President, still living, politicians, captains of industry, religious leaders, NGOs, etc came out publicly and spoke against the killings and begged the killers to end the madness, came out publicly and appealed to Buhari to speak publicly and address his supporters to end the blood-letting, to speak out against what was happening, Buhari never spoke.

      Instead, after some days, Buhari went on Al jazeera to speak on the elections and how the elections must have been rigged and how his party would go to court.

      The Nigerian Police did not seem to realise that the proper order of hings was to arrest the so-called complainant, a foreigner from Niger, who had to audacity to make a complaint against a full-blooded Nigerian on his own soil, on whatever name he chooses to give his possession, and furthermore, has even, by the Police’ own witness, gathered a mob of like-minded bloodthirsty rabid rabble who have sworn to kill, to kill! this Nigerian, in Nigeria, because of his decision over his personal property which decisions contravenes absolutely no law in the Nigerian Constitution. Rather, instead of arresting both the foreign and home-grown would-be murderers, the police turned around and arrested the innocent victim and citizen whom they are sworn to protect and whose “friend” they spend a lot of PR money to claim and try and convince him, and us, that they are.

      Not even the fact that the murderers have already begun their killing with their theft and slaughter of Buhari, Mr. Joe Fortenose Chinakwe’s dog, snapped the Nigeria Police to sanity. This man’s life has been threatened, he has been a victim of theft, now along with his rights, his property, his property/his animal has been stolen and slaughtered (dogs cost money, by the way), he is being wrongfully detained whilst his would-be murderers walk freely.

      Imagine, what would happen, if one cow was stolen from Daura and killed? Or, one cow from the Fulani terrorists/herdsmen? the herdsmen-terrorists that by Buhari’s own testimony, in Buhari’s own words were “”my people”” (Buhari’s people) and now, suddenly, jnow that he is at the helm of government and expected to move against them, through no evidence that one can see or that was offered, by the same Buhari’s testimony, are “Libyans”.

      Buhari did not speak then, when blood was being shed in his name.

      It was Buhari who said that “By the grace of God, the blood of the dog and baboon would flow in the streets.”

      In the same year, a living baboon/chimpanzee was given a new home, a sanctuary.

      Within three months, the blood of a dog flowed in the streets.

    No no no, this is not acceptable. Excuse me? Aren’t the complainant and his gang the ones to be arrested and locked up forever for threatening another man’s life. Abi is there more to this issue???
    Shame on us, shame on the Nigerian Police for not doing the needful. Needless to say the guy is from Niger, Niger ntori Olohun.
    Please let’s make plenty noise. This is the height of madness. This man can’t be locked up for this flimsy reason.

    You want to kill a man (a major crime!) becuase you believe he insulted Buhari by naming his dog Buhari. In their minds, calling the dog Buhari is worse than taking a human life.

    What a bunch of animals.

    This sham of a country called Nigeria is really finished. I repeat, Nigeria Police Force is the worst on earth. You charge a man to court and ignore people that have threatened to kill him if he is released; the same group of person went ahead and killed his dog.
    Where are all this NGO’s and human right activists that were active during GEJ’s time? Cowards, you have suddenly become deaf and dumb. This country really needs to be split; its very obvious a section of the country is highly favored.
    The Niger republic citizen is an illegal migrant that should be arrested and deported but the Nigerian police force is quick to charge him and leave out those threatening his life. RIP Nigeria

    Change!!! I was in a conversation with a friend post the elections and l recall saying Nigerians are a vocal people Buhari will find it difficult to cope with criticism being the dictator that he is. My friend laughed and said “you just watch – Nigerians are cowards. All the Police, EFCC, DSS need do is pick up a few elites and your elites plus the occupy Naija group will become deaf, blind and dumb”. I am sad to see that the freedom of speech ya all took for granted is gone. Nigeria is back to living in fear.

    All law enforcement apparatus are falling over themselves busy reading the New Sheriffs body language. The President of course may not know the atrocities being committed in his name but, his body language says otherwise. From the silence on the shenanigans of the Fulani herdsmen, religious intolerance, his reaction to his loss in 2011 to his recent political appointments. Those actions/inactions, more than anything are pointers to the way we roll in the new era.

    Obviously, Buhari learnt nothing from his short fatalistic tenure. All the sudden visits by former heads of state and religious persons are signs that “his sfriends” can hear the murmuring of the people. But, will pharaoh listen? Buhari should for once speak to Nigerians in Nigeria not from abroad. He should go on air to denounce any crap being committed in his name. Send a stern warning to the law enforcement agencies and seeing he has a cult following in the North, he should talk to his people in a manner in which they understand.

    Anyways, l think Mr. Joe Chinakwe should sue the police. Pick him up to protect him l can understand but, to CHARGE him to court? Now, that is absurd. I think the man should just relocate elsewhere. He said he would but lack the finance to do so. The Umunna should stand up and help.

    “Oyeyemi said the rearrest was to prevent the state from being plunged into crisis, adding that the complainant and his sympathisers had threatened to kill the suspect.”

    I’m so confused, an illegal immigrant threatens a Nigerian with violence and the Nigerian gets arrested??? O’Brien would be so proud. Truly 2+2 is now 5.

    Abimbola Oyeyemi is an incompetent traitor who should be dismissed from the force immediately.

    Where are the lawyers in Nigeria, does this not piss them off enough? It is clear that some animals are more equal than others. A Muslim man from Niger has more rights than a Christian from the south in Buhari’s Nigeria and not a single fuxing Senior advocate has said a word. The lawyers in Ogun state where are you? Shame

      My dear, I asked the same question. ” where are our lawyers? ”
      May Gani Fawenmi continue to rest in peace!
      There are no public advacates in Nigeria any more?
      Where is amnesty international?
      Freedom of speech and expression is now dead?

      The accused should sue everyone from the accusers to the police department, to the state and Federal government!
      Class action law suit is needed.
      Someone need to make a statement.
      Nigeria must not and cannot remain like this for ever.
      People’s rights are human rights!

    On what legal grounds was he arrested? To ‘save’ his life? Shouldn’t you be arresting the aggressor? I’m always in awe of the thought process of many Nigerians. The thinking is always flawed. And it’s like the most stupid people get into powerful roles. As everyone has asked, where are the lawyers?

    the height of rubbish…. the police can proudly say the complainant and his sympathizers threatened to kill the accused person, yet there is no attempt whatsoever to arrest them for issuing such threats.
    but they can hurriedly arrest this man and detain him till Monday for trash.. I weep for my nation, Lord have mercy, and may ur wrath fall heavy on these religious Bigots.

    Enough of this madness. This is the type of thing we see in nollywood movies. To think that the man threatening to kill Mr Joe is not even a Nigerian and shouldn’t be in our country, makes it annoying and baffling. How dare the NPF go to Mr Joe’s house to collect him, when they should be collecting 20 naira by the roadside like they always do. Release Mr Joe and stop violating his rights.

    This is soooo wrong on so many levels.. Didn’t someone have a signage hung around the neck of the a goat with Jonathan’s name while he was president? Was he arrested, threatened with harm or charged to court? So why show this be any different? Oh wait, PMB is from a tribe that’s above the Nigerian law! FOH
    Nigeria is indeed a banana republic, you’re arresting a citizen of Nigeria because he chose to name his dog after the president?! This shyte makes absolutely no sense… Have the Hausa people become so above the law and feared that fellow Nigerians from other tribes have to bow to them always?
    Like I’ve said here before, Nigeria is a ticking time bomb headed towards an ethno-religious war because of the inactions of the FGN to curb the excesses of the Hausa/Fulani tribe.

      “What are you even saying? Can you hear how ignorant you sound? You are saying something ENTIRELY different!! Who called the president a dog? Even if they did, everyone is entitled to free speech, still that doesn’t justify the injustice in this case.
      It’s baffling that an illegal immigrant is being favored in this case and a Nigerian is being treated like a third class citizen (mostly) because of his tribe and religion. Who am I even kidding? these are the exact reasons why he’s being treated this way. I tire for Nigeria o, sometimes I wonder if we’re better off without the northerners.

  23. Free speech....

    August 20, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    Free speech?don’t be fooled by that catch phrase,there are consequences for your speeches,people go in for instigating violence,or for insulting others,when you are placed under arrest,the first thing the police tell you is anything you say will be used against you in the law court.lets preach respect.

    Just two short months ago, Mrs. Aisha Buhari called a human being a dog; she called a man, a sitting governor, “an unchained mad dog.”

    Apparently, in Buhari’s home, world and government, it is perfectly right and proper for a man to be named a dog but not for a dog to be named after a man.

    Former president Obasanjo just in May this same year, in full glare of invited media, donated a chimpanzee which he had named Patience (the name of the former First Lady, wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan) to a wildlife sanctuary. The police should ‘swing into action’ and go and arrest him also.

    We are not a muslim/islamist country. Despite all their laid plans and agendas to which they have been working and implementing from late Muritala (in fact even before) till date, they will ultimately fail and it will all blow up in their faces and they will find that they have more than shot themselves in their own foot.

    Buhari is not a god.

    And, Buhari is most certainly, not God.

    Buhari’s name can not be blasphemed. He simply doesn’t qualify. He simply can never, nor will ever be able to qualify.

You leave the police who are monumentally stupid and attack someone who probably has not even heard this story…. Sentiment is what has kept Nigeria backwards and will continue to keep us there, until we learn to be objective and address real issues…. Our mentality is what is keeping us where we are and until we change how we think….
