Kaduna In Another Fresh Ethno-Religious Crisis As Muhammadu Buhari Returns 


In another case of religion-induced disturbance, a fight broke out in the new Panteka market along the Nnamdi Azikiwe bypass in Kaduna.

The fight erupted when an Igbo man allegedly named his dog Muhammad. According to Daily Trust, the market was closed down by men of the Nigerian Police who restored peace after the fight broke out.

Panteka market is a major spare parts centre which houses many mechanic garages in the state. According to an eyewitness, named Aminu Ibrahim said the trouble started when one Muhammad bought a dog and allegedly named it Ibere after an Igbo trader.

Ibrahim said: “Since the boy named the dog after the trader, the trader had warned him on several occasions to rename the dog, but the owner of the dog Muhammad refused. The Igbo trader, Ibere also bought a dog and named it Muhammad, this is when all hell was let loose.”

Subsequently, a fight erupted between Hausa and Igbo traders in the market which led to the closure of the market by the police.

As at the time of this report, the police spokesperson was not available for comments at the time of filing this report as he did not pick calls put across to his phone.

In a similar vein, about six months ago, a man named Joachim Iroko Chinakwe was arrested, detained and arraigned by the police in Ogun state for allegedly naming his dog after Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari.

Although, Iroko later said he named his dog after the president because the latter is his mentor, he and his wife had to leave the state after receiving death threats.

The police explained that Iroko was arrested and arraigned for conducts likely to cause breach of peace and not because he named his dog Buhari.
