Joachim Iroko, the trader arrested for naming his dog Buhari, says the most painful part of his ordeal was the murder of his dog ‘Dog’ while he was in detention.
Iroko was arraigned on Monday before a Sango Ota magistrate’s court, Ogun state, on a two-count charge bordering on breach of the peace.
Although he was immediately granted bail, Iroko wasn’t able to fulfill the bail conditions until Thursday.
Shortly after his release, the trader said that going to prison was a good experience for him.
“Thank God, I have regained my freedom. The most painful thing is the way they treated my dog. I am not happy that they killed my dog, while I was in detention”, he said.
