Joachim Chinakwe, the man arrested for naming his pet dog ‘Buhari’ has named his newly born daughter after the wife of the president, Aisha.
Lawyer and Human Rights Activist, Inibehe Effiong, said Mr. Chinakwe called to inform him about it. Effiong was involved in the case of Chinakwe. The lawyer shared the updates on his Twitter page:
He wrote: “Joachim Iroko Chinakwe, the man who named his dog ‘Buhari’ has done it again. He has just called to inform me that he has named his newly born baby/daughter after the wife of @NGRPresident. He has given his 3-day-old baby two names; Mise and Aisha.” “According to him, Mise is a native Delta name which means ‘I am doing it’. He said that he also named his daughter Aisha, after the wife of @NGRPresident and that she will bear the two names concurrently. Sincerely, I am short of words. I never for once contemplated this.”
“As a matter of fact, I deliberately refused to ask Iroko what name he intended to give his daughter when he called last Friday, Sep. 2 to intimate me that his wife had put to birth. I do not know what Nigerians will say about this.”
“It is my prayer that this will not also end him in jail since some names seems to have special protection of the @PoliceNG.” ghost “Let us hope that this is not another ‘conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace’.”
