The communications Director of the Ghana Boxing Authority, Mohammed Amin Lamptey has urged that boxer Bukom Banku be put in prison as a punishment.
The former Light Heavyweight champion Braimah Kamoko well known as Bukom Banku alongside his son has been remanded by an Accra Circuit court for allegedly stabbing a man.
According to the prosecutor in charge, the boxer alongside some friends caused havoc and attacked others in Bukom on Friday, November 25th, 2022 at 5:30 pm.
The complainant, Ishmael Neequaye who is also a neighbor disclosed that the noise in the area woke him up from his sleep. He disclosed that he tried to restore calm.
However, the prosecutor stated that Bukom Banku upon seeing the complainant Ishamel Neequaye broke a bottle and gave it to his son identified as Mustapha to stab Ishmael. The son of Bukom thrust the broken bottle into the abdomen of the complainant who was later rushed to the Korle Bu teaching hospital.
Speaking on Citi News, Mohammed Amin Lamptey said that Bukom Banku deserves every punishment he is receiving and must be punished for his actions. He added that the boxer was bringing the profession into disrepute.
Mr. Amin added that the punishment given to Bukom Banku will serve as a deterrent to young and upcoming boxers to resist violence.
