A trader named Chinakwe has been arrested in Ogun State Nigeria, after his neighbour had reported to Police Authorities that the man’s pet dog was named Buhari. A claim the owner of the pet dog confirmed, giving reasons why he had to name his dog after the president of the country, President Mohammadu Buhari.

The man since then had been arrested, freed and re-arrested by the police authorities in the state of Ogun, South West Nigeria. We know of dogs being named Billy, Bingo, Smart, Jonie, Bruce, Kenny etc the question now is, is it a crime for one to name his dog after names of people?
If for example an American decides to name his Dog ‘Obama’, does that constitute a crime? Well our fingers are crossed, everyone is watching to know what becomes of the case, although the Police Authorities are now saying that the man was being placed in protective custody.Dod naming+Nigeria We Serve  +BBC News +BBC Africa +VOA News +CCTV Africa +CNN International +ABC News +AFP news agency +Reporters sans frontières +United Nations +United Nations Human Rights +Channels Television  +Sun News Report +Daily Mail +Fox News +The Voice of Germany - Offiziell +News18 +OBSERVER +Amnesty International +Congressman Xavier Becerra +euronews (in English) +European Commission +Al Jazeera English +The White House #ranblog
