Bukom Banku and son remanded in police custody; check out reason
Ghanaian professional boxer Braimah Kamoko, commonly known as “Bukom Banku” competes internationally. On the basis of the accusation of facilitating a crime, an Accra Circuit Court ordered him to spend a week in police detention.
He is said to have assisted Prosper Quaye in injuring Ismael Quaye in Bukom in the Greater Accra Region.
Mustapha Kamoko, Bukom Banku’s son, who was also charged with causing damage, was also present in the courtroom.
Bukom Banku, 50, and his son Mustapha Kamoko have both asserted their innocence.
32-year-old jobless Prosper Quaye, who was with them and is being arrested on suspicion of inflicting unauthorized damage, did not appear in court to enter a plea.
The court then issued an arrest warrant for him.
Prosper Quaye arrived at the court early but informed Mr. Godwin Amoah, the accused person’s attorney, that his stomach hurt and that he was going to get some medicine.
Because they were connected and had solid sureties, Mr. Amoah pleaded with the court to release his clients on bond.
They were not “flight risks,” he said, and had permanent residences.
The prosecution opposed bail because the accused had previously committed a similar offense and would interfere with police investigations if released on bail.
Additionally, it requested that Prosper Quaye be detained by a judge.
Therefore, the court, which was presided over by Mrs. Adelaide Abui Keddey, ordered their seven-day detention in police custody and instructed them to appear again on December 19, 2022.
Police Chief Inspector Maxwell Ayim, the prosecutor, informed the court that while the accused—Bukom Banku and his son—are boxers and Prosper Quaye is unemployed—are the complainant, Mr. Ishmael Neequaye, a football player who resides in Bukom.
All of the defendants, according to the prosecution, resided in Bukom, a neighborhood adjacent to Jamestown.
According to the prosecution, the complainant was asleep in his chamber on November 25, 2022, at 3:30 p.m., when he noticed an odd noise coming from outside his home.
According to Chief Inspector Ayim, the guy who made the complaint awoke to see several of his pals being beaten up, including Julius Tagoe, a witness in the case.
According to the prosecution, the complainant approached them and restored order.
Bukom Banku allegedly shattered a bottle and offered it to Mustapha to attack the complainant when he saw him, according to Chief Inspector Ayim.
According to the prosecution, Mustapha seriously sliced the complainant’s abdomen while paying attention to the Banku, resulting in significant bleeding.
Prosper reportedly also took a stone and flung it at Tagoe’s 32-inch TV, according to Chief Inspector Ayim.
According to the prosecution, the complainant was admitted after being transported to the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital.
Chief Inspector Ayim claimed that despite attempts, the accused individuals evaded capture.
According to the prosecution, criminal summonses were issued and sent to them so they might appear in court.
