The Accra Circuit Court that issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Braimah Kamoko popularly known as “Bukom Banku,” for failing to appear before it, is still looking for the accused person.
This is because “Bukom Banku” did not turn up on April 19, when the case was called.
It is the second time the boxer had failed to attend court after that of Tuesday, April 17.
Meanwhile, the bench warrant still stands and the police are making frantic efforts to arrest him.
The Court, presided over by Madam Marian Affoh adjourned the case to May 29, to give the police ample time to search for “Bukom Banku”.
The boxer, together with five others, four of whom are at large, is facing charges of assault, causing damage and two counts of causing harm.
One Albert Annan alias “Agya One”, businessmen and second accused has also been charged for assaulting Bukom’s son.
They had earlier on denied the charges and were granted bail.
Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Emmanuel Ohene Agyei, told the Court that the prosecution witnesses are Ziyad Musah the Assemblyman of Amamomo Electoral Area in James Town and Mavis Moffat, a businesswoman both residents at James Town.
Kamoko also lives at Bukom whilst his accomplice, a businessman lives at Amamomo, all in Accra.
On April 2, this year, at about 1800 hours, Kamoko’s two sons Mustapha Kamoko and Abu Kamoko in the company of other boys, went to James Town to look for their missing bicycle.
The prosecution said the young men were making a lot of noise, so Musah, who was conversing with “Agya One” and others approached the boys and asked them to stop disturbing the peace.
He said Abu, 14, was being truant which led to “Agya One” whipping him on the buttocks with his waist belt, Abu then went to inform his father Bukom Banku.
The prosecution said Bukom Banku in turn, organised thugs including, Razak, Adjei, Nueoko and Kalaba, now on the run, armed with cutlasses, bottles, sticks and stones and went to Agbon High Street, Amamomo, where they attacked Musah, Mavis and “Agya One”.
According to the prosecution, residents fearing for their lives started running, however Bukom Banku caught up with ‘Agya One’ and slapped him on the face and later held Musah’s T-shirt, tore it and punched his lips with his fist.
He said Musah sustained cuts on his lips and bled profusely.
The prosecution said Bukom Banku, again removed a knife from his pocket and slashed the second accused on his left hand.
He said Mavis rushed to the aid of Musah but Bukom Banku turned his anger on her and pushed her, landing her into a gutter thereby sustaining a fracture at her ankle and also lost her I-phone 7.
Chief Inspector Agyei said Bukom also broke six pieces of plastic chairs, two benches and a draught game.
He later sent his two sons to the Police Station to lodge a formal complaint.
The prosecution witnesses on the other hand made a report to the police and they were all issued with police medical report form to seek attention.
Bukom Banku and “Agya One” were charged after investigations.
