There appears to be more trouble for a 30-year-old trader, who named his pet dog ‘Buhari,’ as the Ogun State Police Command Friday vowed to arraign him in court on Monday.
The embattled trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, has been rearrested and is now under detention at the state police headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta.
The state’s acting Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said in an interview with reporters Friday that Chinakwe’s action was capable of fuelling ethnic crisis if not well-managed.
Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, said the suspect would be charged for conduct likely to cause breach of peace.
It will be recalled that the trader was arrested last Saturday after one of his neighbours of Northern extraction complained that he named his pet dog ‘Buhari.’
The suspect was later let off the hook after spending three days in police custody at Sango-Ota.
But the police spokesman said the suspect had confessed in his statement that he named his pet dog ‘Buhari’ and had the name written on the body of both sides of the animal.
