Just after his release from prison, Joachim Chinakwe Iroko, the man who named his dog Buhari, has revealed that he does not hate President Muhammadu Buhari. He, in fact, said the president was his mentor and that he had other dogs named after other prominent leaders of the world.
Iroko, a 40-year-old native of Delta state, was arraigned at the Ota Magistrate’s Court, for conduct likely to cause breach of peace and remanded in Ibara Prisons in Abeokuta, Ogun state. The incident led to serious criticism against the Nigerian law enforcement agencies as well as the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. However, the presidency released a statement on Thursday, August 26, 2016 saying Buhari did not order Iroko’s arrest over what it termed a laughing matter.
After his release from prison, Iroko said he had learnt a lot of lessons.
