Barely 72 hours after a trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe’s detention at the police for naming his pet dog after President Muhammadu Buhari, a woman, has named her dog after the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed.
The woman, who goes by the name, Ada Ogbonna, caused a massive stir on the social media after she posted a photo of her carrying her dog.
She shared this on her wall on Facebook on Thursday, saying she named the dog after someone she admires.
She tagged the photo: “Meet my dog, Lai Mohammed.
“I named it after someone I admired. I wonder why that other man got arrested for naming his dog after a look alike, na wa o.”
Meanwhile, recall that the detained trader, Chinakwe explained that he had been an ardent supporter of the President and saw nothing wrong with his action.
Upon his arrest, he had insisted: “I did not commit any offence. I named my beloved pet dog Buhari, who is my hero. My admiration for Buhari started far back when he was a military Head of State.”
The 30-year-old trader has, however, since been released following the intervention of both the Serkin Hausa and President-General of non-indigenes in Ogun state.
While some users lambasted the lady for her act, others said she was right as some of our leaders deserve to be called animals and other unprintable names.
