Deji Olatunji has been charged with “owning a dog that was dangerously out of control.”
“I’m suing. I’m suing someone” were Deji Olatunji‘s words in his video i need your help, about the latest update of his situation with his dog, Tank.
He then went on to ask his viewers for advice and encourage them to help: “It’s been six months and nothing has happened, we haven’t been charged or anything, and I’m really starting to think that they are trying to steal my dog.”
Back in July 2018, Deji’s neighbour came round to collect a parcel from him. Tank came out through the front door, which led to an incident of the neighbour being bitten.

The petition claims that the neighbour “reacted aggressively by shouting, screaming and hitting the dog constantly with the parcel […] and this resulted in Tank nipping her once.”
The police were called and Tank was taken to a local kennel to “calm down as he was stressed”.
The petition goes on to allege that: “The police came to their house on Saturday the 28th of July asking them to sign an Acceptable Dog Behaviour Contract.
“After they had signed the contract, it was later drawn to their attention that the police had already seized their dog so they could lose their training deposit and did not informed them that their dog had been seized.”
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police told Metro.co.uk: “On 23 July we were contacted with reports that a dog had attacked two people. ‘Officers attended the scene and the dog was seized while the matter was investigated.
“Olayinka Olatunji, 52, and Deji Olatunji, 22 were each charged with two counts of owning a dog that was dangerously out of control. One count with injury and one without.”
The pair have been released on bail and a court date has not yet been set.
