Bench warrant issued for Bukom Banku’s ARREST

The Adjabeng Magistrate’s Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of  Braimah Kamoko, alias Bukom Banku, who has been accused of assaulting an unemployed man.

Presenting the facts of the case, Inspector Victor Dosoo said the complainant (name withheld) is an unemployed man residing at Akoto Lantey in Accra.

The accused is a boxer who resides at Bukom near James Town in Accra.

According to the prosecutor on October 1, 2015 at 2:00a.m., while the complainant was asleep with his wife, Bukom Banku forcibly entered their home.

According to the prosecutor, Bukom Banku barged into the room, holding a cutlass, pulled the complainant out of the bed, and dragged him out.

Inspector Dosoo said Bukom Banku then used the cutlass to beat the complainant mercilessly.

The commotion drew witnesses to the scene who pleaded with Bukom Banku to release the complainant.

Inspector Dosoo said all the pleading from the witnesses fell on deaf ears, as Banku, who didn’t seem satisfied with the beatings he meted out to the complainant, further dragged him to a spot at Bukom and forced him to kneel down.

The prosecutor said when the complainant knelt down, Banku used the cutlass he was wielding to assault him again.

A report was made to the police but efforts to get Banku to report to the police for investigations haven’t been successful.

Bukom Banku is charged with causing unlawful damage by the court, which was presided over by Miss Arit Nsemoh.
